MS Amlin, the Lloyd’s reinsurer, has announced the appointment of Johan Slabbert as CEO.
Slabbert succeeds his predecessor Tom Clementi, who stepped down from his position as CEO on 31 October 2020 after four years in the role to “pursue other opportunities” outside of the business
Clementi will reportedly remain with the firm until the end of the year to support a “smooth transition” and regulatory handover.
Slabbert brings with him more than two decades of leadership experience in the international reinsurance market, having held several CEO and CFO roles.
He first joined MS Amlin in May when he was appointed as a non-executive director and chairman of the Board.
Slabbert began his career at AIG before joining Chaucer Limited as CFO, where he was also CEO for two years. He also served as operating partner and CEO of Augustus Specialty LLC.
While at AIG, Slabbert spent six years in Japan and has been working within the MSI group for some time in his role as Chairman of Mitsui Sumitomo Insurance Company (Europe) Ltd, a position he has held since 2017.
Tamaki Kawate, director and SEO at MS Amlin said: “With the foundations in place for us to build a world-class reinsurance business in MS AUL, we are pleased that Johan has agreed to become CEO.
“Johan is a recognised leader in the insurance sector with rich international experience and a strong track record of successfully managing and delivering growth for high-profile businesses.”
He added: “His industry experience, expertise and strong leadership capabilities will be integral to supporting the business as it builds a modern, relevant, profitable and client-focused business.”
