London-based Miller Insurance Services has announced its planned leadership changes ahead of CEO Graham Clarke’s departure from his post next year.
The insurer said incumbent COO Greg Collins will become deputy CEO next month and will be appointed as CEO in 2017, replacing Clarke.
Ben Speers will be appointed to the board as COO to succeed Collins.
Miller has also appointed Ken MacDonald to the board with continued responsibility for the broker’s property and casualty business unit. He will also serve as a member of the audit committee.
Jonathan Fussell has also been named as partnership secretary, the company said.
The leadership changes, which are still subject to regulatory approval, will take effect on July 1. Miller did not give the exact date of Collins’ assumption as new CEO.
“After over 16 years as CEO of Miller, I am delighted that we can commence our Board succession plans with the appointment of these talented leaders who can help drive Miller forward into our next chapter,” said Clarke.
“I am excited to continue playing a significant role in the development of our business in my new capacity as Chairman from next year,”
Clarke will replace Nicholas Lyons, who will step down as non-executive chairman.
