Victor Insurance Holdings, the world’s largest managing general underwriter, has announced the appointment of Anthony Stevens as president of Victor International. In his new role, Stevens will be responsible for advancing Victor’s insurance specialty outside of North America.
Stevens succeeds Paul Drake, who has announced plans to retire in September. Drake will continue to lead Victor in the UK until a successor is appointed, the company said.
Stevens is based in London and will report to Christopher Schaper, CEO of Victor Insurance Holdings.
Prior to joining Victor International, Stevens served as head of international development for Marsh’s global risk and digital division. He has worked throughout Europe and Asia-Pacific on the carrier, brokerage and consulting sides of the industry.
“A technology-driven leader, Anthony’s extensive experience in building next-generation commercial insurance distribution models, as well as international development, make him ideally suited to drive Victor International’s extensive growth plans,” Schaper said.
“Technology, data and analytics are globally revolutionising the way in which the insurance industry transacts business, and managing general underwriters are at the forefront of this transformation,” Stevens said. “Victor is a new breed of MGU and is now well-established in numerous markets including the UK and across continental Europe. I’m excited to develop new opportunities incorporating innovative insurance products and digital solutions throughout the international insurance market.”
