Global insurance group Zurich has appointed Caroline Dunn as Chief Underwriting Officer for its UK branch to lead its underwriting strategy across all lines of business.

Dunn will join the Zurich team in November, following Hayley Robinson’s recent promotion to the role of Chief Group Underwriting Officer at Zurich Insurance Group.

She joins from Lloyd’s where she has spent seven years heading up various divisions such as Market Development and Underwriting.

In her most recent role in the Markets division, Dunn was responsible for the distribution strategy, broker and syndicate relationships and leading the Lloyd’s Global Network.

Prior to this, she spent 14 years with RSA.

Dunn commented: “There has never been a more exciting time for the insurance sector, with both market and customer needs shifting at a rapid rate. Joining the team at Zurich is the natural next step in my career and a very exciting one.

“A strong and successful customer centric brand with a hugely talented team, I’m looking forward to embracing the challenges ahead and offering the best quality products and services to our customers and brokers.”

Tim Bailey, Zurich UK CEO added: “At such a pivotal moment for both our industry and Zurich in the UK, I’m really pleased to welcome Caroline to Zurich UK. Her experience at both Lloyd’s and RSA gives her the perfect skillset to lead our Underwriting team as we continue to grow our business and serve both our customers and brokers.

“We are all very much looking forward to working with Caroline as she joins our team in November.”
