Xenia Broking has expanded its leadership team with a series of “significant” appointments to the company’s boards.
Alun Sweeney and Simon Pyper are set to join the credit insurance firm as its non-executive director and chief financial officer, respectively.
Sweeney has recently retired from his 20-year role as country head of Atradius UK and Pyper just finished being CFO and CEO at Be Heard.
Mark Whitley, director of Xenia Broking, has been promoted to the regulated boards of the firm.
Sweeney said: “I have traded with the personalities and entities that comprise Xenia for many years.
“I have long respected them and am now looking forward to helping them chart their way to onward success as they seek to evolve their specialist approach and experience for the benefit of their clients.”
Pyper said: “Xenia has a clear opportunity to become the leading specialist trade credit and surety broker internationally. I am hugely excited to be on the team and to play my part in making the vision a reality.”
“I very much look forward, with my additional responsibilities to helping us present our unique offering to an ever-broadening range of clients.”
Tim Coles, CEO of Xenia Broking, said: “These appointments are another formative step for Xenia, adding great bench strength for the exciting times we have ahead as we prepare for the potential separation from Nexus, and execute our ambitious growth plans.”
