Dale Underwriting Partners Syndicate 1729’s parent company Dale Holdings Limited has confirmed the addition of John Chambers (pictured left), John Hastings-Bass (pictured right), and Clare Hennings to its board as independent non-executive directors.

Chambers is stepping into the role as chair of the group risk and underwriting committee, armed with more than three decades of Lloyd’s market experience. His credentials include significant contributions at AEGIS London, where he was underwriting director as part of a 19-year stint. Currently, Chambers also holds a non-executive director position at the TT Club.

Hennings, meanwhile, is set to lead the group investment committee, bringing her extensive 25-year background in insurance and investments. Her most recent role was director of investments at M&G, and she presently lends her expertise as an independent advisor at Hiscox.

Joining them is Hastings-Bass, who will leverage his experience as chair of both the Dale Managing Agency Limited board and its remuneration and nomination committee – positions he has held over the past two years.

Founder and chief executive Duncan Dale commented: “The wealth of experience these additions bring to the Dale Holdings Limited board will undoubtedly assist the team in building the Dale business following our partnership announcement with CVC.

The appointments come on the heels of the company’s announcement last October which saw Preben Prebensen taking on the independent non-executive chair post.

Prebensen said: “The additions of John, Clare, and John to the Dale Holdings Limited Board will make a substantial contribution to the board and to Dale achieving our strategic objectives.”

Meanwhile the underwriting business highlighted on LinkedIn: “With their collective expertise spanning the Lloyd’s market, insurance, investments, and strategic board leadership, their appointments mark a significant step in our journey.”
