Leading global insurer RSA has appointed one of its long-time executives, Nathan Williams, as the new group underwriting director.
Williams will start his new role on June 1, replacing David Coughlan who was recently appointed personal lines director for UK and Western Europe.
In his new role, Williams will lead the development and implementation of the insurance group’s underwriting, reinsurance and claims strategies and technical pricing standards. He will also set the company’s appetite for risk.
Williams will be joining the insurance group’s executive team, reporting to RSA COO Paul Whittaker.
“Strong underwriting discipline and effective claims management are essential pillars to our strategy and I look forward to Nathan bringing his experience and expertise to help us deliver a stronger, focused and better RSA,” Whittaker said.
Williams, a 28-year veteran in the insurance industry, said he is “delighted to play a leading role in moving our capabilities to the next level.”
Williams has worked at RSA for over 10 years, most recently as chief underwriting officer at RSA Scandinavia.
Before joining RSA, Williams severed in various pricing and underwriting roles at Norwich Union for 16 years.
