The global business solutions provider Sedgwick has today named Neil Gibson its CEO in the UK. Having most recently served as COO of Sedgwick’s operations in the UK, New Zealand, Middle East, Africa and Asia, Gibson is also on Sedgwick’s global environmental, social and governance (ESG) committee.

In a Press release, Sedgwick noted that Gibson brings over 18 years of insurance industry leadership experience to the role as well as decades of operational claims management and colleague development expertise.

Commenting on his appointment, Gibson said he is “honoured” to take up his new role and to support the continued growth of Sedgwick’s business and resources in the UK.

“From my four years as COO to this new role, my focus remains on our people, as they are our most important asset in the work we do,” he said, “I am committed to delivering on our values and objectives for the benefit of our 2,000+ UK colleagues and the valued clients we serve.”

Gibson succeeds Paul White – who was named Sedgwick CEO for the UK, New Zealand, Middle East, Africa and Asia in October 2019. White will retain oversight of Sedgwick’s business in the UK and other international territories as regional CEO.  

White also commented on Gibson’s appointment, highlighting how his successful four-year tenure as COO makes him “the natural choice” to drive Sedgwick’s UK business to the next level.

“His industry experience and outstanding knowledge of our local business will serve him well in delivering the best possible service to our clients, and his involvement in Sedgwick’s activities will pave the way for his continued success,” he said. “Neil brings significant value to his new position as Sedgwick continues to invest in the UK market.”
