Specialist Risk Group has announced the promotion of Lee Anderson to group deputy CEO and the recruitment of Clare Lebecq as group COO, following a series of recent acquisitions.
Since announcing new majority shareholder, HGGC at the end of December, which is still currently subject to regulatory approval, SRG has announced the acquisition of KBIS British Equestrian Insurance, GB Underwriting and The Channel Partnership and has moved to “bolster the senior leadership team” in preparation for its next phase of growth.
Warren Downey, SRG Group CEO, said: “I am delighted Lee is taking up the role as group deputy CEO. He plays an integral role in the character and development of our group. More of our business will be under his leadership going forward which is good news for all of us who know Lee and how he operates.
“Clare Lebecq is an important figure in our industry and a tenacious and qualified leader. She has made a tremendous difference to our market in her role as CEO of London Market Group. We are excited to have her join our senior team as she takes responsibility for our operational platform and in particular the integration of our acquired businesses.”
Anderson added: “I am honoured and excited to take up my new role in helping lead and develop SRG in its next phase of growth and am thrilled that Clare is joining us to help us all realise our full potential.”
