“I am confident that we will all benefit from his tremendous leadership skills, strong underwriting background and deep understanding of international markets as we continue our development as a leading global underwriting group.”

Commenting on the new role, Milner said: “Chaucer’s reputation, which is built on the experience and expertise of its talented people, innovation and a disciplined approach to risk management, makes it a natural next step for me.

“I am excited about the opportunities ahead and the chance to be part of something special.”

Chaucer has made various leadership changes in recent times.

In July last year, the company named Chris Baker as its global reinsurance head.

Baker, who has been with Chaucer since 2004, will manage all lines of reinsurance business as well as territories in the new role.

Earlier in 2023, Chaucer appointed Simon Tighe as its group head of ESG. Tighe will also retain his existing responsibility of Investments & Treasury group head in addition to the new position.
