KPMG hires Zurich veteran

Professional services firm KPMG has announced the appointment of Graham Boffey (pictured) as insurance partner in its financial services consultancy team, effective October 01.

In his new role, Boffey will work closely with Simon Ranger, head of insurance at KPMG, to support clients across the UK market. Boffey brings considerable insurance industry experience and most recently acted as head of UK distribution at Zurich Insurance. He began his career at IBM and Barclays, and spent more than a decade at Aviva, where he fulfilled many roles including chief executive officer of Aviva Healthcare, and, later, managing director of corporate benefits.

“It’s great to be heading back to KPMG – its UK leadership team is bold and braced for change and I want to take that mentality out to clients,” said Boffey. “Customers, and society at large, are putting ever greater pressure on big businesses to demonstrate their value and nowhere is that more prevalent than in insurance; a sector designed to help people protect what’s important to them. Simon and the team at KPMG understand that we have to change now to be relevant in the future. I’m looking forward to getting to know the team and their clients to help them make that change.”

“Graham brings with him a huge amount of experience and a practical understanding of how the industry needs to change,” said Ranger. “He’s helped some of the biggest insurers navigate some of the choppiest waters over the last few decades. I’m sure our clients will appreciate his knowledge, and, most importantly, our colleagues will benefit enormously from working with him.”
