Specialty (re)insurance group, Chaucer has announced the promotion of Deborah Wyatt to head of political risk and credit, as current head Nick Kilhams retires after 22 years of dedicated service.
Chaucer states that under Kilhams leadership the firm has become a centre of excellence for political risk and credit underwriting, building a team focussed on delivering market leading solutions for clients and brokers.
Wyatt joined Chaucer in 2016 from AXA XL (XL Catlin) and before that, AIG and Euler Hermes.
Additionally, Neil Edwards will also be promoted to deputy head of political risk and credit.
John Fowle, CEO of Chaucer, comments: “Nick has always been a much liked and highly valued colleague, leading our Political Risk and Credit Team with passion and a commitment to delivering market leading solutions for our clients and brokers. Nick will be much missed, but both Chaucer and Nick believe that now is the right time to hand over to Deborah Wyatt who will assume the role of Head of Political Risk and Credit. Deborah has done a magnificent job during her time at Chaucer and I couldn’t be happier that she has taken on the leadership of the team.”
