The acquisition by Intact will give the business an opportunity to continue to build on its strong market position. I’m looking forward to working closely with Scott, the UK&I Executive and the wider Intact team to take the business to further success.”


Jones said: “The next twelve months will be a critical period for RSA and Intact as we move through completion of the deal to ensure that the newly combined businesses are set up for success in the future. Having worked intensively on the transaction I’m eager not just to see it through but help make sure RSA’s UK&I business is in the best possible position to seize the opportunities it brings.”

Scott Egan added: “I’m delighted Mark is joining RSA for the next stage of our journey. We will benefit greatly from his expertise, insight and passion as we continue to strengthen and improve our businesses in the UK and internationally.
