RSA has announced that Ken Norgrove has been appointed as CEO, UK and International, effective 10 January, 2022, subject to regulatory approval.
He succeeds Scott Egan who will be leaving the business at the end of 2021.
Norgrove was most recently CEO of RSA Scandinavia from 2019 until completion of the deal in June 2021. Previously, he was CEO of RSA Ireland and led the turnaround of the business from 2014 to 2019.
He will report to Charles Brindamour, CEO intact financial corporation and Mark Hodges, chair of the RSA UK and International board. He will also sit on the IFC Operating Committee.
Charlotte Jones, RSA’s chief financial officer, will serve as interim CEO until Norgrove’s regulatory approvals have been received.
Charles Brindamour, CEO, intact financial corporation, said: “I am pleased to welcome Ken back to RSA as CEO UK & International as we build on the momentum of the last few years and set our sights on achieving sustainable outperformance.”

“I’d also like to thank Charlotte for her energy and exceptional commitment to RSA. She has been an instrumental part of our success in the last three years, and her support throughout the transition to new ownership is second to none.”
