Lloyd’s managing agency AEGIS London has announced the appointment of Tom Squires as Head of Digital Trading, a newly created role.
Squires, who previously served as AEGIS London’s Deputy Head of Casualty, will oversee the firm’s online quote-and-bind platform OPAL (Online Platform Aegis London).
“We are investing in digital trading across the piece and OPAL is now at the stage where it requires full time operational leadership,” said John Chambers, Director of Innovation and Corporate Development.
“Tom has been actively involved in the development of our digital strategy and is well placed to take over the challenge of driving OPAL forward, both expanding existing products but also adding more strategic partners, territories and risk classes.”
Commenting on his appointment, Squires said, “I am delighted to take a more active role in the development of our digital offering.”
“We want to improve our systems, make more effective use of the datasets we are building, and ensure that the distribution chain bringing smaller risks into the London market is as efficient as possible. I look forward to building the team further in the coming 12 months.”
