Zurich ex-UKGI boss Conor Brennan becomes CEO of Irish broker


Exclusive: Zurich’s former UK general insurance boss Conor Brennan has left the business.

Post understands that he has joined Arachas, one of Ireland’s largest non-life brokers as CEO. The company confirmed he will take up his new role on 1 June.

Brennan pictured was appointed to the Zurich role in 2016 as replacement for UK CEO and GI boss Vibhu Sharma. His departure comes as Zurich announced an underwriting shake up.

He was later moved to director of business development in December 2017.

Zurich confirmed Brennan had left his role but said the move was unrelated to yesterday’s announcement.

A spokesperson said: “Conor has decided to leave after almost a decade with Zurich. And, while it’s always a shame to see great people go, we wish him the very best in his new role back at home in Ireland. I know he’s really enjoyed the UK market engagement and trading with key brokers here.”
