Hyperion taps from within for group COO post

Howden Broking Group chief operating officer Rebecca Scott (pictured) has been promoted to group COO at parent firm Hyperion Insurance Group.

Scott was chief risk officer at a Lloyd’s managing agency and a partner at Chartered accountancy firm Mazars before coming onboard the insurance intermediary group about five years ago. Aside from her COO roles, she has also held the positions of internal audit head and CRO within Hyperion.

“Since Rebecca joined us in 2014, she has led a number of key strategic projects including, most recently, the highly successful and transformational London office move which has seen us take on our new headquarters at One Creechurch Place,” commented Hyperion chief executive David Howden.

Scott’s elevation to group COO means she is now part of the group executive committee (GEC).

“She brings important additional strength to the GEC and is extremely well placed to support Hyperion in our next phase of growth as we embrace the changes needed to ensure we earn the right to remain independent while retaining our culture,” added Howden.
