Anderson, who has also been Specialist Risk Underwriting Solutions CEO and Specialist Risk Insurance Solutions managing director since 2019, will be replaced as SRG group COO by Clare Lebecq. As previously announced, the London Market Group (LMG) chief is leaving LMG at the end of April.
Downey noted: “Clare Lebecq is an important figure in our industry and a tenacious and qualified leader. She has made a tremendous difference to our market in her role as CEO of London Market Group. We are excited to have her join our senior team as she takes responsibility for our operational platform and in particular the integration of our acquired businesses.”
SRG recently snapped up KBIS British Equestrian Insurance, GB Underwriting, and The Channel Partnership.
“I am honoured and excited to take up my new role in helping lead and develop SRG in its next phase of growth and am thrilled that Clare is joining us to help us all realise our full potential,” said Anderson.
Lebecq, meanwhile, had this to say: “I am delighted to be joining SRG at such an important stage of their journey. I am also excited to be joining a company that recognises that culture and being a good colleague positively influences its success as a business.”
Majority owned by private equity firm HGGC, the integrated insurance intermediaries group serves more than 42,000 end-policyholders across multiple lines of business.
