Specialist re/insurer Beazley has appointed 20-year industry veteren Troy Dehmann to serve as Chief Operating Officer (COO).
His appointment follows former COO Ian Fantozzi’s transition to lead Beazley’s recently established digital business unit.
Dehmann most recently served in a similar role for Finance Operations and Core Finance at HSBC.

Dehmann also joins Beazley’s executive committee and will be based in London.
“Troy’s deep experience in building operational excellence and driving transformation within the finance sector will be invaluable as we continue to build an agile and flexible platform upon which to bring our specialist products to new markets and ensure our people have the systems to support them wherever they are in the world,” said Adrian Cox, Beazley CEO.
Commenting on his appointment, Dehmann said, “I am thrilled to join Beazley at this time as we continue to scale and strengthen our operational capability.
