Fidelis Insurance has appointed Richard Brindle as its new chief underwriting officer, replacing Ben Savill who will leave to pursue other opportunities.
In the new role, Brindle will spearhead underwriting across the four pillars of bespoke, reinsurance, partnerships, and specialty.
Brindle will take up the new role, while retaining his existing responsibilities of chairman and group CEO.
Savill also serves as the CEO of Fidelis Insurance Bermuda. He will be replaced in this role by group CFO Hinal Patel.
The restructure also includes the group general counsel Patricia Roufca assuming the additional responsibility of COO.
In the new role, Roufca will be responsible for managing cohesion and efficiency across different functions.
Commenting on the move, Brindle said: “We are always looking to improve our service to our clients and this clear division of our core underwriting business into four pillars will sharpen the focus on our key products and relationships. We have great strength and depth in our executive team, and Patricia will be instrumental in driving the continued search for efficiency in all we do.
“I am looking forward to an exciting future for Fidelis with strong definition on our sources of profit and differentiation, and with a relentless dedication to our culture of execution.”
