Beazley names new CUO

Speciality insurer Beazley has appointed Bob Quane as its new chief underwriting officer, subject to regulatory approval. Quane joins from Axis Capital where he was CUO and will take up his new role on 11th October. He will be based in New York, highlighting Beazley’s ambitions on the US market.

Adrian Cox, CEO of Beazley, said: “Bob brings exceptional depth and breadth of experience across multiple commercial and consumer lines, and his successful track record of delivering portfolio growth is impressive. His extensive global experience will be invaluable as we continue to develop our business in both our established and growth markets.

“It is a bold move for an underwriting firm headquartered in London to appoint a CUO based in New York, but Bob’s appointment underlines our commitment to the US market and our future growth plans there.”
