We’d like to welcome Colm Tully to the Paymentshield family, as he takes the reins as part of his role, as Commercial Director for Partnerships at Atlanta Group.

This follows the move of former Paymentshield CEO Rob Evans, who has taken up the role of Chief Commercial Officer for Paymentshield’s parent company, the Atlanta Group.

Colm’s role will cover all B2B distribution for the Group across mortgage, lettings and automotive partnerships. As a key member of Atlanta’s commercial leadership team, Colm will also leverage capabilities and innovation from across the Group to benefit Paymentshield’s partners and their customers.

He will work closely with Directors of Distribution, Emma Green (mortgage) and Rana Ali (lettings and automotive), who between them have over 30 years’ experience at the company, plus the experience of the wider leadership team at Paymentshield. 

Colm has a wealth of experience and expertise to bring to the role from almost 20 years in the Insurance sector. He understands the motivations of every link within the insurance chain, having previously worked as a broker for 10 years, as well as Commercial Manager for Ireland’s biggest B2B insurer/reinsurer and a stint working for the AA in the direct-to-consumer world, before becoming Managing Director of Carole Nash Ireland in 2019.

His leadership and strategic vision will help Paymentshield continue to provide high-quality insurance products and services to its partners and customers, as he looks to accelerate ongoing technology innovations and leverage digital capabilities from within the Atlanta Group.

Rob Evans, Chief Commercial Officer at Atlanta Group, says:

"I’m thrilled that Colm will be taking over the helm of Paymentshield. Having worked with him on Atlanta’s acquisitions over the last year or two, and having seen first-hand his passion for innovation, partnerships and customers, I know he’s the right person to lead Paymentshield and our wider Partnership proposition. His experience across multiple channels and products, as a broker and a product provider, will also add a broader perspective to how we constantly improve our proposition.”

Colm Tully adds:

“I’m very excited to take on Paymentshield and our Partnerships business. Paymentshield is the flagship partnership brand within the Atlanta Group and I’m looking forward to meeting our partners, to understand what the future looks like for them and how we need to support their ambitions and growth.

“Working alongside the talented Paymentshield team, I am confident that we can continue to deliver unparalleled customer satisfaction, build on our existing tech expertise, and bolster the range of support and insights we offer advisers.”
