He will be responsible for incorporating innovative technologies into the business alongside overseeing the current cloud-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform.

Saha's appointment is the second addition to the PremFina C-Suite this year and follows David Wardle's appointment as Chief Operating Officer in May.

His previous roles include head of digital solutions at Fiserv as well as various technical and managerial roles at SunGard Data Systems, White Clarke Group and Barclays.

He also served as an army officer in the British Army for seven years, where he was responsible for operations, logistics and team development.

"Nij joining us as at this time of our company's growth marks an exciting time at PremFina," said chief executive officer Bundeep Singh Rangar.

"With Nij at the helm of our growing IT team, I am confident we will be able to further progress our scaling ambitions in the UK and abroad. With his skillset and drive, we will be able to achieve an even higher level of service excellence."
