RSA Group plc (“RSA”) today announces the appointment of Geoff Jones as Director of its Specialty and Wholesale unit, part of RSA’s Global Risk Solutions (“GRS”) business.
Geoff, currently RSA’s UK Commercial Claims Director, will lead the refocused Specialty and Wholesale (S&W) division. The company announced earlier this month that it will streamline its London Market offer to provide market leading expertise in fewer chosen specialisms.
Geoff joined RSA in 2010 following a 15 year career as a solicitor specialising in defendant litigation, heading up RSA UK Injury leading a multi-disciplinary function of lawyers, loss adjusters and claims handlers.
In 2014 he was appointed Claims Director for RSA Ireland, where he played a critical role in returning the business to profitability, returning to the UK in January 2016 to take on the role of Commercial Claims Director. In this capacity Geoff oversaw RSA’s commercial property, marine, construction and renewal energy liability teams, and customer account management teams.
In his new role as Director of Specialty and Wholesale, Geoff will report to GRS Managing Director, Tony Buckle. Geoff will take up his new position in the new year.
Tony Buckle, Managing Director, Global Risk Solutions, said:
“The development of a thriving and focused Specialty and Wholesale business is a crucial part of RSA’s strategy. Geoff has the skills and experience to develop a brilliant service for customers in our chosen specialisms, underpinned by market leading expertise, high quality underwriting and fair, accurate pricing.”
Geoff Jones said:
“Having been part of RSA’s commercial lines executive team for the last three years, I am greatly excited by the prospect of leading the Specialty and Wholesale business to deliver consistent quality for our customers and shareholders. My claims experience will serve me well in addressing the performance challenges facing the S&W business, whilst strengthening our relationships with our customers and partners to secure our long term success.”
