Heather Bone has been appointed as CEO from March, where she will lead the company’s operations in the country, working closely with Cameron Green, chairman of Gallagher Re, Australia.

Bone joins from Munich Re where she has been since 2019, serving as head of strategy, non-life, since 2020.

She brings over 20 years of industry knowledge, which will be a significant asset to the team and to her role as CEO.

Her appointment follows a number of others which have been made this year.
