Rokstone appoints Ian Anson as group managing director

Rokstone, one of the largest specialty (re)insurance MGA worldwide and a part of Aventum Group, has appointed Ian Anson (pictured) as group managing director.

Anson joined Aventum Group last year as a portfolio manager and has been promoted to managing director in only 18 months. Before joining the group, he spent six years at Alesco Risk Management Services, where he was a placing broker for four years before being promoted to associate partner in 2017.

As the new managing director of Rokstone's global group operations, Anson will work closely with the CEO and CUO in delivering profitable growth across the group.

Rokstone CEO James Potter said Anson has already delivered multiple commercial growth opportunities and “demonstrated outstanding leadership skills.”

“When Ian joined us just 18 months ago to take up a portfolio manager role, we knew then that we were securing one of the brightest new talents in the market,” Potter added.

“It was soon clear to us that his advanced commercial, strategic, and critical thinking would make him the perfect candidate.  As managing director, he will be a driving force on our journey to become the best global (re)insurance specialty business in the world.”
