As well has her responsibilities surrounding corporate and investor communications, Davis Johnson has the additional responsibility for establishing alignment between the group’s culture, business strategy, mission, and internal communications, says Hamilton.
Brown, commented on the role changes; “As a member of the Hamilton Board since the Company’s formation, I’ve had the pleasure of working with Keith and Wendy since their employment at Hamilton. Like the other members of Hamilton’s executive team, they’re excellent at what they do and are committed to the Company’s growth and development.
“Their expanded roles were approved earlier this year but required ratification by the Board which was given during their quarterly meeting held this week.
“I look forward to working with Keith and Wendy, as well as the other members of the team, as we leverage the significant potential of our partnership with AIG and Two Sigma Insurance Quantified announced last month.”
