Pool Re, the UK’s government-backed terrorism reinsurer, has appointed Tracey Paul to the newly-created position of Chief Strategy and Communications Officer.
Paul has more than 20 years of strategic communications experience and will take up her new position with immediate effect, reporting directly to Julian Enoizi, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) at Pool Re.
Most recently, Paul served the Ministry of Housing and Local Government as Head of Stakeholders and Communication for the Grenfell Tower Building Safety Programme.
Prior to this, she was Chief of Staff for Dame Louise Casey on the review of community cohesion and extremism.
She has also held several senior roles in the Labour Party, most notably managing the strategic communications division during several general election campaigns and regularly briefing senior politicians.
Enoizi commented on the appointment: “We’ve been constantly innovating at Pool Re, trying to keep ahead of the evolving terrorist threat. However, challenges remain: awareness of the terrorism threat and insurance penetration remain low, particularly among SMEs and outside cities or big towns.
“To overcome this, we need a clear, long-term strategy and productive engagement with all of our stakeholders. Tracey will be instrumental in this. She joins with an exceptional track record of developing and articulating strategies in order to find common ground across a broad range of stakeholders.”
