John Colinswood FIMI
Managing Director

John co-founded the WMS Group (then Warranty Management Services) in 2003, and oversees every department at an operational level, from finance, claims and administration, through to marketing and direct sales. He also handles all of the WMS Group’s legalities including FCA and underwriting compliance, and is very involved with our complaints handling.

John has worked in the motor trade for most of his life, with an unprecedented knowledge and experience of the warranty sector and industry as a whole. In the little spare time he has, John lets off steam by clay pigeon shooting, fishing and the odd spot of gardening.
