Specialist (re)insurer Beazley has appointed Troy Dehmann as chief operating officer (COO), effective immediately.
Dehmann’s appointment follows former chief operating officer Ian Fantozzi’s move to Beazley’s recently established digital business unit.
He brings more than two decades of leadership experience in finance, operations and business transformation within the financial services sector.
Dehmann most recently served as global COO for finance operations and core finance at HSBC. He spent almost seven years at HSBC London, working as global COO of business finance and global head of cost management.
Prior to joining HSBC, he held a number of banking roles at Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and JP Morgan Chase in New York.
Based in London, Dehmann also joins Beazley’s executive committee.
Adrian Cox, Beazley CEO, said: “Troy’s deep experience in building operational excellence and driving transformation within the finance sector will be invaluable as we continue to build an agile and flexible platform upon which to bring our specialist products to new markets and ensure our people have the systems to support them wherever they are in the world.”
Dehmann, COO, said: “I am thrilled to join Beazley at this time as we continue to scale and strengthen our operational capability. I look forward to working with our teams to ensure they are supported and well-resourced to deliver excellent products and services in this flexible, hybrid world of work.”
