AIG company Talbot Underwriting will soon be introducing a new chief financial officer (CFO).
From September 28, the company will add Catherine Barton to its ranks as she joins the board, succeeding Nigel Wachman who will retire from the firm after 20 years of service.
“I’m delighted that Catherine is joining Talbot as our CFO,” said acting CEO and syndicate active underwriter David Morris. “With her broad industry experience, developed in various roles, she will bring new perspectives as a member of our leadership team.”
Barton brings with her an array of experience, having started her career with Bacon & Woodrow, and then becoming a fellow of the Institute of Actuaries in 1999, before later switching to be a partner at Deloitte.
“With its established positioning in the Lloyd’s market, and more recently as part of AIG, Talbot has a strong foundation from which to deliver growth and channel innovation in its chosen insurance markets,” said Barton. “I’m excited to be joining David and his team and to being part of the next stage of Talbot’s development.”
