Beazley has announced the appointment of Brenna Westinghouse as the new corporate head of strategy, effective Nov. 1. Westinghouse will be succeeding Rachel Turk, who is transitioning to Lloyd’s as its chief underwriting officer.
Having previously spearheaded the professions PI book, Westinghouse has played a vital role in driving Beazley's expansion and strategic positioning worldwide. In her new capacity, as the corporate head of strategy, she holds a critical position in shaping the company's strategic priorities. Her responsibilities encompass identifying novel growth opportunities and ensuring Beazley maintains a pioneering stance in innovation.
With over two decades of industry experience, Westinghouse has most recently held the role of focus group leader, professions PI, within Beazley’s specialty risks division based in London. Her tenure at Beazley commenced in 2017 after over 10 years at Marsh, where she occupied several senior positions in its international financial and professional lines practice, spanning London, UK, and Boston, USA.
“Beazley has an ambitious strategic agenda and Brenna’s track record of achievement as a leader of our successful professional PI business, make her ideally placed to take on the role of corporate head of strategy,” Beazley CEO Adrian Cox said.
Cox also expressed gratitude to Turk for her contributions to Beazley’s success.
In other recent developments for the specialist insurer, Beazley has also revealed that its long-standing chief financial officer Sally Lake has informed the board of her intention to leave the business in 2023.
