Colin Lavey has been appointed as director of liability for HDI Global SE’s branches in the UK and Ireland, succeeding Owen Digman with immediate effect.
“Having enjoyed the past five years being part of a successful liability team, I am now honoured to take on the role of director of liability for UK and Ireland,” said Lavey, whose predecessor left the industrial lines insurer in July.
“The team and I look forward to further growing our book through the continued excellent delivery of our tailored insurance propositions.”
Prior to his promotion, Lavey served as a senior underwriter. Reporting to UK & Ireland managing director Stephanie Ogden, he will now be in charge of the liability account in the two countries.
“I am delighted to appoint Colin into this role,” commented Ogden. “While it gives our liability team stability, Colin’s leadership will bring a new and fresh perspective. There will be a continued emphasis on profitable growth which is underpinned by an up-to-the-minute data strategy.
“I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank Owen Digman for his dedication and hard work in growing our significant and profitable liability book. I wish him all the best in the future.”
