Industrial lines insurer HDI Global SE has announced a “streamlining” of its leadership in the UK and Ireland by bringing the two branches under the same direction.
Claire McDonald, who is currently HDI’s UK and Ireland managing director, has now also become the authorised representative for HDI Ireland – aligning her existing remit with McDonald’s responsibilities to the UK, Irish, and German regulators of the company.
The appointment will see the departure of HDI Ireland general manager Paul Moraghan, who has been with the business for a decade and has played a significant role in developing the Irish branch.
“It has been a pleasure to work with HDI over the last 10 years,” said Moraghan, “and I am proud of what we have developed here in Ireland. I wish the team every success.
“I am now looking forward to investigating new opportunities that will leverage the depth of my experience.”
Meanwhile, HDI highlighted that it remains committed to the market in Ireland, noting that it will be expanding the product range available for Irish corporate clients over the course of the year.
McDonald commented: “We thank Paul for his dedication, commitment, and for building up our book and our team. We wish him every success for the future.”
