Independent specialist insurance and reinsurance broker BMS has chosen Charlie Rozes as group CFO and executive director.

Based in London, Rozes will report to Nick Cook, BMS Group CEO and will take over from Nick Moss, who is retiring.

He will work closely with Cook and the executive leadership as he drives BMS strategy, organic growth plans and M&A plans.

Nick Cook said: “I am delighted to announce Charlie’s appointment. He has extensive experience leading UK and overseas operations and has successfully driven substantial growth for global and FTSE organisations. His experience will be crucial as BMS looks to continue its momentum, hit its growth ambitions, and further its reputation as the home of an innovative, collaborative and high-performance culture. I would also like to thank Nick Moss for his tremendous contribution to the company over the past five years. Nick has been a driving force behind the incredible growth in BMS and we all wish him well in his retirement.”

Rozes added: “It is with great enthusiasm that I join BMS. Nick and his team are exceptional, and this is reflected in the tremendous growth BMS has been able to achieve. The opportunity to return to the insurance industry means a great deal to me, especially given the opportunity to contribute to BMS at this exciting stage in its growth. I am thrilled to join the team and look forward to working with my new colleagues.”

In addition, BMS has appointed Ryo Iizuka as a director of the private equity, mergers & acquisitions, and tax in Japan.
