RSA has announced a series of senior appointments within its commercial business divisions - Commercial Risk Solutions (CRS) and Global Risk Solutions (GRS).
The appointments support their growth and development following a refocus of some commercial activities.
Two internal appointments have been made in the GRS business; Calvin Gray takes on the role of sales & distribution director – effective immediately and Anne Mehta will move from her current role as lead auditor, to become head of governance and control – effective in March.
Alex Hardy will join RSA as sales and distribution director for CRS.
After almost six years with RSA, Gray will oversee the team responsible for developing and maintaining productive relationships with customers and broker partners.
Mehta will work with the global commercial leadership team to embed risk management and ensure compliant practice throughout the refocused GRS business.
Hardy joins the team with a wealth of experience having worked across the UK, Ireland and London market.
Tony Buckle, managing director, GRS commented: “I am delighted to announce Calvin’s appointment as director of sales and distribution in GRS. Calvin’s determination to use data to inform our strategy and drive our business forward is first class. He will build out our broker and customer proposition in areas where we can truly differentiate and that will stand us in good stead as we reposition our GRS portfolio.
We are also delighted to appoint Anne as our GRS head of governance and control. Good governance lies at the heart of our business, and Anne will challenge us to maintain that focus as we develop our business, our specialist proposition and our support structure.
These appointments reflect not only the quality of the bench at RSA but our determination to stretch our up-and-coming talent in senior roles.”
Rob Gibbs, managing director, CRS said: "Alex is a great fit for CRS, and his track record of relationship management and innovative leadership will be invaluable as we build on the current momentum and create maximum impact in the market.
Alex joining the team is testament to the quality of talent that our commercial business is able to attract externally."
