Insurer RSA has announced that it is to appoint Rachel Conran Interim Chief Executive of RSA Luxembourg, subject to regulatory approval.

She will replace current CEO Richard Turner, who will leave the company at the end of the year after 36 years with the firm.

Previously Turner, who is currently the First British President of the International Union of Marine Insurance (IUMI), had led RSA’s global marine practice and helped establish its Global Speciality Lines business, which later became GRS.

Conran only joined RSA earlier this year as Chief Underwriting Officer of Global Risk Solutions (GRS), having been Chief Underwriting Officer and CEO of SCOR’s Global Insurance Business; and CUO and Global Head of Property of Allianz Global Corporate and Specialty.

RSA Luxembourg office is RSA’s hub for European business, serving both European Union-based customers and UK customers with European interests. The office was established in September 2018.
