Beazley names global cyber and executive risk head

Specialist insurer Beazley has announced the appointment of Beth Greenwood (pictured) as global head of cyber and executive risk (CyEx) starting in July. She will also join Beazley’s executive committee.

Greenwood joined Beazley last September to lead the London market and US-based executive risk team, focusing on products including US directors and officers and employment practices liability.

Greenwood has more than 20 years of experience and has worked extensively across management liability lines, including D&O, errors and omissions and cyber programs. She will succeed Mike Donovan, who is retiring. Donovan will remain with the company for a period of time to ensure a smooth transition.

“I am delighted Bethany Greenwood has accepted the role of head of cyber and executive risk,” said Andrew Horton, CEO of Beazley. “Bethany has quickly established herself as a widely respected leader within CyEx with the skills needed for the future of the team.”

Also within CyEx, Paul Bantick will take on global responsibility for cyber and tech from July. Bantick currently leads the London market and international cyber and tech team.

“Paul Bantick’s deep expertise in the cyber space and track record for building strong underwriting propositions around the world will be of tremendous value as we continue to build our global capability,” Horton said.
