TigerRisk UK CEO to step down...

  • Publish Date: Posted over 7 years ago

John Goldsmith, the chairman and CEO of TigerRisk Partners UK, is to step down from the position on 31 December. Hugo Crawley has been named as Goldsmith’s replacement, subject to FCA approval. TigerRisk CEO, Rod Fox said, “I am truly saddened to announce John Goldsmith’s retirement. Starting from an empty office on Leadenhall St, John was able to build a highly successful and respected UK presence in just five years. Thanks to his leadership, extraordinary ability to recognise talent and stellar reputation, TigerRisk has become an integral part of the Lloyd’s, UK and European markets. He will always be part of the Tiger family.” Goldsmith’s retirement marks the end of a 50-years career which started in 1966 as a reinsurance broker trainee at Alexander Howden & Company. Goldsmith served in a number of leadership roles, including non-executive director on the boards of Cathedral Underwriting Agency, Aegis London and Montpelier Re Underwriting Agency. Fox contacted Goldsmith in 2011 regarding the establishment of a UK presence for TigerRisk. Goldsmith said, "Opening in London was a typically bold TigerRisk move and I just couldn’t pass it up. It is now five years from that first day and I can say wholeheartedly that being chairman and CEO of TigerRisk UK has been the highlight of my 50-year career.”
