Cyber chief leaves Hiscox


By Terry Gangcuangco

Hiscox cyber chief executive Gareth Wharton, who joined the specialist insurer in 2006, has left the business. The ex-CEO announced his departure on LinkedIn.

Prior to taking on the top cyber post in 2017, Wharton served in various capacities including chief technology officer and team lead for infrastructure services. Before then, he spent years at Aon.

“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time at Hiscox; I’ve worked with some amazing people and been involved in some great projects,” Wharton said. “However, 2024 means some exciting new opportunities.”

It’s unclear whether the opportunities still relate to insurance.
