Specialist global insurer Hiscox has bolstered the boards of two UK legal entities, adding three new Independent Non Executive Directors.
James Illingworth will sit on the Board of Hiscox Syndicates Ltd (HSL), which oversees the insurer’s globally traded specialty (re) insurance lines, while Mark Cliff and Jane Hayes will both join the Board of Hiscox Insurance Company (HIC), which oversees its UK Retail operations.
Cliff brings over 35 years’ industry experience, and has held a number of senior industry and trade body roles during this time. He will take up his appointment on 1 July.
Illingworth and Hayes both have substantial underwriting expertise, with James bringing 36 years’ industry experience and Jane nearly 40 years’ of running insurance portfolios in all segments.
They will take up their appointments on 23 June and 1 July respectively.
“We will benefit immensely from Mark, James and Jane’s knowledge of the market, underwriting and distribution expertise, as we continue to pursue growth in UK Retail and realise the opportunities that exist in our big-ticket lines,” said Robert Childs, Hiscox Group Chairman.
“These appointments bolster our existing senior expertise and it is always pleasing to attract this calibre of experience to our UK Boards.”
