Fagen, who was formerly CEO of Australian and New Zealand operations for the giant insurer, left the firm a year after stepping into the newly created group COO role.

In November, the ICA announced that Fagen would take on the role of president from January 1 with Peiris appointed as deputy president.

Fagen has been involved in the insurance industry for over 21 years and worked for QBE for over 16 years.
