MS Amlin Underwriting Limited (MS AUL), the Lloyd’s global specialty (re)insurer, has appointed Amir Sethu as head of Sustainability & ESG, a newly created role.
Sethu (pic) takes up the role later this month and reports directly to Martyn Rodden, director of Strategy & Transformation.
As head of Sustainability & ESG, Sethu will be responsible for both the continued development and implementation of MS AUL’s ESG strategy, as the business brings together a diverse range of ongoing and new initiatives operating under a comprehensive ESG framework.
Sethu brings more than two decades of industry experience to the role, with extensive experience in a range of leadership positions and deep subject matter expertise in sustainability and ESG.
He joins from Lendurance, a boutique ESG-focused commercial lender he co-founded in Singapore before exiting the business earlier this year.
Prior to this, Sethu spent seven years as a Director at KPMG, advising a broad spectrum of commercial firms on ESG and broader strategic change initiatives. He also spent eight years as group head of Internal Audit at Brit Insurance.
Martyn Rodden, director of Strategy & Transformation, said: “I am delighted that Amir will be joining MS AUL in this newly created sustainability role. His extensive experience in the ESG and CSR landscape, alongside his creative thinking and track record of developing and delivering complex projects, will undoubtedly be critical to our strategic journey and meaningful output in this rapidly evolving space.”
“As the industry reflects on the road ahead, Amir’s appointment signals MS Amlin’s continued commitment to investing in and building on our ESG expertise and capabilities to support our policyholders, the market and broader global community.”
