Australian giant QBE has appointed Inder Singh, chief financial officer of its Australian and New Zealand operations as interim ANZO CEO.
The decision follows ANZO CEO Pat Regan’s appointment as group CEO from 1 January 2018, replacing John Neal.
In a statement QBE said: “A search for a permanent CEO for ANZO has commenced, but given it’s unlikely a replacement will be found before Regan commences his new role, an interim solution has been implemented for the transition period.”
Singh, who will start the new role on 1 November, will be supported by Andrew Broughton, executive general manager consumer and retail partnerships and Jason Clarke, executive general manager intermediary distribution.
Regan said he was confident in their capabilities and that the appointment of a permanent CEO for Australia and New Zealand “would be one of his top priorities and progress had already been made in seeking out suitable candidates.”
With great sadness we confirm that Sir David Rowland, our former Chairman from 1993 to 1997, has passed away. He played a critical role in safeguarding the future of the Lloyd’s market through perhaps its most difficult period.— Lloyd's (@LloydsofLondon) February 18, 2019
