Specialty (re)insurance group, Chaucer has announced the appointment of Jonathan Sutcliffe as general manager of Chaucer Insurance Company DAC in Dublin, succeeding Michelle Moore, who is set to depart on 31 March 2021.

John Fowle, CEO of Chaucer said: “Over the last four years, Michelle has led the successful launch and build-out of Chaucer’s speciality (re)insurance company in Ireland which supports our international growth strategy, as well as providing our brokers and clients with greater platform choice. We are grateful for Michelle’s leadership and dedication, and on behalf of everyone at Chaucer I wish her well in her future endeavours.”

Rob Callan, non-executive chairman of Chaucer Insurance Company, comments: “Since joining Chaucer as Head of Underwriting in Dublin, Jonathan Sutcliffe has worked closely with Michelle and her team to drive the vision and growth plans for Chaucer Insurance Company forward. His wealth of experience and exceptional industry knowledge, which includes leading China Re Syndicate 2088 and a decade with XL Catlin as Head of Casualty Reinsurance in Bermuda, has brought significant value to the business and I am confident that this will continue as he takes on responsibility for the overall direction and management of our business in Dublin.”

Michelle Moore added: "This decision was a very difficult one for me to make. Chaucer Insurance Company has an excellent team in Dublin, a well thought out business model and exciting growth plans. I wish Jonathan and all my former colleagues at Chaucer the very best for the future.”
