Insurance brokers who work with Swiss Re Corporate Solutions will soon have a new face to engage with – but it’s a far from unfamiliar one.
The reinsurance giant’s corporate arm has this morning announced that well-known industry name Caroline Pritchard (pictured) will take over the role of head of distribution UK, leading the firm’s broker strategy and representing all of its products and solutions towards the insurance broker base. She is set to take on the role once contractual obligations are fulfilled – she has held the role of global relationship leader at Crawford & Company since May last year.
“I am delighted that Caroline will join our customer & distribution management team,” said Jake Algar, head of the UK, Swiss Re Corporate Solutions. “She has a long-standing career in successfully nurturing strong collaboration with broker partners and, with her on board, we’ll advance our go-to-market distribution strategy for the UK.”
Overall, Pritchard boasts more than 25 years in the commercial insurance sector – including close to 10 years at Zurich, five months at Aon and more than five years at JLT. She was also a vice president at Marsh, and spent over nine years at the firm.
