ERS has appointed Francois-Xavier Boisseau (pictured) as chair of ERSSML, the managing agent of Syndicate 218 at Lloyd’s, and as a non-executive director of its holding company, ERS DGB Ltd.
The appointment is effective immediately and is subject to regulatory approval. Boisseau succeeds Amanda Blanc, who became CEO of Aviva.
Boisseau joined ERS as a board member in May. He has more than 30 years of industry experience from his previous role as CEO of Ageas UK insurance and from positions at Groupama, Ageas UK, Bollington, Lark, Carole Nash and AXA. He also serves on the board of Argo Lloyd’s Managing Agency as a non-executive director and as a non-executive director at Ecclesiastical.
“I would like to thank Amanda Blanc for her tremendous contribution to the business and I wish her well in her new role as CEO of Aviva,” said Jeff Greenberg, chairman of the insurer’s holding company ERS DGB. “When Francois-Xavier joined ERS’s board, he instantly brought deep knowledge of the industry from both the broker and insurer perspective. His elevation to chairman will help the company continue to expand and strengthen its position in the market.”
