Lloyd’s global specialty re/insurer, MS Amlin Underwriting Limited (MS AUL) has appointed Rob Margetts to its Strategy & Transformation team.
He will join MS AUL in the coming months, and will report to Martyn Rodden, Director of Strategy & Transformation.
Within his new role, Margetts will develop and implement a range of strategic initiatives identified by the business, following a strategic review by MS AUL’s executive team in 2021.
These initiatives includes plans across current and legacy portfolios, as well as supporting MS AUL’s longer-term strategic ambitions, working with parent company Mitsui Sumitomo Insurance (MSI) and US-based sister company MS Amlin Distribution Holdings.
Margetts brings more than two decades of experience within the re/insurance market, and joins from legacy specialist, Compre.
Margetts joined Compre as the Head of M&A, where he was responsible for executing all transactions, before becoming Head of Lloyd’s in 2020, overseeing all operational aspects of the relationships with their Managing Agent and Lloyd’s of London, as well as leading the development of new business opportunities.
Prior to Compre, he held several roles at Aviva, both within its UK general insurance business as the Head of Strategic Capital Management and Head of Capital Management, with Aviva Group. In addition, Margetts also spent a decade in the re/insurance consulting space, including eight years at KPMG.
Martyn Rodden, Director of Strategy & Transformation, MS AUL, said: “I am delighted Rob has chosen to join the Strategy & Transformation team at MS AUL. As recently confirmed, our ambitions are focussed on a number of fronts, as we continue on our journey to consistently deliver a profit, as well as supporting our parent’s desire to become a more significant force in international markets.
“Rob’s role will place him at the heart of this strategy, utilising his extensive experience, contacts and relationship building capabilities to support MS Amlin as it identifies the most valuable opportunities, as well as ensuring we take the advantage, to secure new revenue streams and distribution access.”
