RSA Insurance has appointed Ade Adeyemo (pictured above) as the new head of construction for its UK risk consulting team.

Adeyemo originally joined RSA Risk Consulting in October 2022 and will now lead the construction risk engineering proposition across both commercial and specialty lines. He will be replacing current UK construction lead Trevor Chainey, who is set to retire after a 45-year career.

A qualified chartered civil engineer, Adeyemo has more than three decades of experience in construction management and risk engineering. He transitioned to insurance after working for some of the UK’s largest construction companies for over 10 years, spending time at AIG and Zurich, among other industry players.

Adeyemo is also the chairman of the Construction Insurance Risk Engineers Group.

Andy Jones, risk consulting director at RSA Insurance, expressed his excitement about Adeyemo’s appointment, stating that he is an experienced and well-respected practitioner.

“Since joining us, he has already got to know many of our clients and his expertise has and will be invaluable,” Jones said.

He also wished Trevor Chainey a happy retirement and thanked him for his valuable contributions to the team.

 “He has had a great career and is a valued colleague that we will all miss both personally and professionally,” Jones said of Chainey’s retirement.

Last week, RSA announced the appointment of Gary Mason as its new chief operating officer delivery director. Mason is tasked with leading the technology transformation of the company’s key operating and claims capabilities to improve customer experience. This transformation includes the implementation of the cloud-based Guidewire ClaimCenter system, which aims to simplify the claims experience for customers.

Guidewire was recognized as one of the Top Insurtech Companies in the UK. Learn more about the winners in Global 5-Star Technology and Software Providers 2023 special report.
