BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.
To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.
To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.
Bermuda-based Aspen Insurance Holdings Ltd. on Tuesday announced a series of key management changes including several senior departures and said its U.K.-based managing general agency Aspen Risk Management Ltd. will be placed into runoff.
The changes come just months after Mark Cloutier was appointed executive chairman of Aspen’s board and group CEO following the $2.6 billion acquisition of the company by Apollo Global Management LLC.
Aspen is working with the management of Aspen Risk Management “to ensure all policyholder obligations and service requirements are fully supported and consistent with Aspen’s standards of policyholder and broker service,” the company said in a statement.
The decision has “no impact” on Aspen’s mainstream U.K. property and casualty business, the statement said.
As part of the shakeup, Kate Vacher, most recently group director of underwriting and chief executive officer of Aspen Bermuda Ltd., is leaving the company to “pursue personal interests,” according to the statement.
David Schick, former group chief operating officer, and Donald Harrell, former head of international insurance and global head of marine, are leaving the company with immediate effect to “pursue opportunities outside Aspen,” the statement said.
A spokesman for Aspen declined to comment on where Mr. Schick or Mr. Harrell are going.
With immediate effect, Aspen has made the following appointments:
Mr. Cain, Mr. Aman, Mr. Atkinson, Mr. Frydas, Ms. Martinez, Ms. Petiwalla and Ms. Stanford will be based in London, while Mr. Astwood, Mr. Dunleavy, Mr. Foley will be based in Bermuda, the spokesman said.
“As we continue to focus on operational improvement and strengthening Aspen’s competitive position, it is essential we have the right talent to execute on our strategy, serve brokers and customers and drive to enhance the long-term value of our business,” said Mr. Cloutier, executive chairman and group CEO in the statement.
Aspen has also begun the process of closing its Dublin office due to the proposed move of its Dublin excess casualty business to London, according to the statement.
