SCOR appoints UK head of crisis management

SCOR has appointed David Guest (pictured above) as head of crisis management for SCOR UK and the SCOR Syndicate. Guest’s remit includes terrorism and political violence, and he reports to Marie Biggas, chief underwriting officer of SCOR UK and active underwriter of the SCOR Syndicate.

Guest has more than 26 years of industry experience, having led underwriting teams across the UK and Asia-Pacific insurance and reinsurance markets. Most recently, he was global specialty regional leader for Asia-Pacific and the Middle East at AXA XL.

“David has a highly diverse range of experience and technical capabilities, making him perfectly placed to head up our crisis management team,” Biggas said. “His understanding of the market, combined with his ability to build long-lasting relationships, will be a great asset to us and our clients.”

“We are continuing to build on the momentum of our strong results from the past couple of years,” said Chris Beazley, CEO of SCOR UK and the SCOR Syndicate. “Our aim is to grow sustainably, while at the same time offering our clients a broad array of risk management solutions designed to best service their needs. David is a well-regarded industry professional with an impressive track record, and his expertise in crisis management, terrorism, and political violence insurance further enhances our underwriting capabilities. It is an absolute delight to welcome him to the team.”
