Brit, an international general insurance and reinsurance group, has announced the appointment of Gavin Wilkinson as group CFO.
Wilkinson will join from the multinational general insurance company, RSA, where he held a number of senior financial roles, including CFO at RSA UK and International, CFO at RSA Ireland, and group performance and capital director.
A “stand-out candidate”, Williamson will take over the responsibilities of Mark Allan, who is stepping down from his position in May 2021.
Matthew Wilson, CEO at Brit, said: “He [Williamson] brings a strong technical skillset, deep expertise in leading finance functions within non-life insurance and an impressive track-record of driving performance throughout his career.
“Critically, Gavin has demonstrated himself as a key strategic partner to boards and management teams. His energy and dynamism strongly resonated with the culture we have created at Brit and I look forward to working closely with Gavin in his new role.”
Williamson added that he is looking forward to building on an “ambitious vision and a clear strategy” by joining a team with a “strong culture of innovation”.
