Hastings Group Holdings Plc is about to have a new group chief financial officer.
Announcing the retirement of Richard Hoskins, the tech-driven insurance provider said MS Amlin group CFO John Worth is taking over the role “within the next few months.” The latter brings experience from the likes of The Co-operative Bank, Hiscox, Aspen Insurance Holdings, Barclays, PwC, and Prudential Plc.
“I am delighted to welcome John to Hastings and look forward to working with him as we continue our profitable growth trajectory,” commented Toby van der Meer, group chief executive officer at Hastings. “I would also like to thank Richard and wish him well for the future.”
The firm said Hoskins and his successor will work together for a smooth handover.
Meanwhile Hastings chair Gary Hoffman also has nice words for the departing executive, who came onboard in April 2015.
“Richard has played a significant role guiding the group through its IPO in October 2015 and in the past four years has helped it deliver sustained profitable growth underpinned by disciplined cost management,” noted Hoffman. “I would like to thank him for his contribution.”
