Aspen appoints US, UK chief executives

Aspen Insurance Holdings Limited has made senior appointments, including those for the top posts at the group’s operations in the US and the UK.

Bruce Eisler, who has been with the company since January 2010, is now Aspen Insurance chief underwriting officer as well as chief executive of Aspen US. The CUO position was previously held by David Cohen, who has left the insurance group. Eisler’s credentials include time spent at AIG and Liberty International Underwriters.

Meanwhile, tapped to serve as CEO of Aspen Insurance UK Limited (AIUK) and Aspen Managing Agency Limited (AMAL) is Richard Milner, the former VIBE Re boss who came onboard in February as senior managing director of Aspen Re International. The Axis alumnus has more than two decades of industry expertise.

It’s also been announced that AIUK chair Theresa Froehlich has been added to Aspen’s board as non-executive director (NED). The role will be on top of her other current positions as NED of AIUK and AMAL. Froehlich’s experience spans stints at Swiss Re and Lloyd’s of London.    

No changes, however, will be made to Christian Dunleavy’s remit as Aspen Bermuda CEO and Aspen Re CUO.
