RSA Insurance Group has appointed Charlotte Jones as its new chief financial officer (CFO), succeeding Scott Egan who moved to become CEO of the company's UK and international division.
Jones will serve on the board as an executive director, reporting to group CEO Stephen Hester. She is expected to take up the CFO position by summer 2019.
Jones is currently a non-executive director of RSA and member of the group audit and board risk committees.
She will leave her executive role as CFO of Jupiter Fund Management to take up the new position at RSA.
Stephen Hester, RSA chief executive, commented: “We are delighted that Charlotte has agreed to join RSA as CFO. She has excellent financial services credentials and is well known to us, having served as a non-executive director on our board over the last year. She will be an able successor to Scott Egan and I’m looking forward to working with her.”
Jones commented: “I’ve enjoyed getting to know RSA as a non-executive director. The business has a clear, ambitious strategy and a strong team, and I’m pleased to be getting more deeply involved to help them take their plans forward.”
