Specialty (re)insurance group Chaucer has appointed Johnny Bøgelund as head of Chaucer Copenhagen replacing Gero Michel who has stepped down from the role.
In his new role, he will be responsible for managing Chaucer’s European and Scandinavian underwriting portfolios, and working with the Copenhagen, Oslo and London teams to support the long-term development and growth of Chaucer Copenhagen.
Bøgelund will also be responsible for the Danish branch of Chaucer Insurance Company DAC in Ireland (which trades as Chaucer Dublin).
He joined Chaucer in 2009 from Maersk initially working as a marine underwriter and brings over 3 decades of risk management and underwriting industry experience.
John Fowle, CEO and CUO at Chaucer commented: “Johnny has a wealth of underwriting expertise, business experience and proven leadership capabilities and has established himself as a key contributor to Chaucer and our customers. We all look forward to working with him in this important new role. Expanding our European presence through in-depth understanding of client exposures and the delivery of tailored solutions is an important strategic goal for Chaucer, and Johnny’s drive and insight will significantly support us in achieving this.
I would also like to thank Gero Michel, as he steps down from his role as Head of Chaucer Copenhagen. He has provided strong leadership and greatly contributed to our business and on behalf of everyone at Chaucer, I wish him all the very best.”
Bøgelund added: “This is an exciting new challenge for me and I look forward to working with my colleagues in Scandinavia and London as we continue to develop our position as a valued insurer and reinsurer for brokers and clients.”
