Sarah Willmont was promoted to UK CEO and Alois Rouffiac to the Chief Underwriting Officer (CUO) of the United Kingdom. Lisa Davis remains CEO, US and Bermuda, with a TOC for this region to be announced in due course.

The Canopius claims function will now also be represented within the group and regional management teams and will reflect the global underwriting structure in its design.

The restructuring also leads to the creation of new leadership positions in underwriting, three of which have been filled internally, underscoring Canopius’ commitment to nurturing talent within its business.
