Lancashire Holdings, the Specialty insurance and reinsurance firm, has appointed John “Jack” Gressier as a Non-Executive Director.
Gressier has over thirty years’ experience in the insurance industry having worked since 1986 for BPC Underwriting Agencies, before moving to Charman Underwriting Agencies and subsequently the ACE group as Director of Marine and Specialty Lines.
He also served at AXIS Capital Holdings. There he had management responsibility for AXIS Capital’s international insurance operations from 2002 and all insurance operations from 2007 onwards.
Peter Clarke, Lancashire’s Chairman, said: “We are very pleased to welcome Jack to the Lancashire Group as a Non-Executive Director. Jack has longstanding and deep experience as an underwriter, senior executive and director within the London and international insurance industry.”
“His extensive insurance experience will bring additional expertise to the Lancashire Board. Jack will also serve as a member on both our Underwriting & Underwriting Risk Committee and the Remuneration Committee.”
Last month, the company made several other key appointments, including James Irvine as its new group Chief Underwriting Officer for reinsurance, James Flude to CUO of general insurance business, and Nick Thompson to replace him, moving over from his current role of group head of non-marine reinsurance strategy.
