August 3, 2018 - London Market Group (LMG) is pleased to announce the appointment of Clare Lebecq as CEO. Clare, who will take on the role on a permanent basis, will start on 1 November and replaces Chris Beazley, who will return to MS Amlin as CEO of their Swiss reinsurance operation at the end of August.  In the short intervening period, the LMG’s agenda will continue to be overseen by the Board sponsors with progress driven by the LMG team alongside the well supported workstream SteerCo’s.

Andrew Horton, Chairman of the LMG commented: “We are delighted that Clare is joining us and her understanding the market – both operationally and from a distribution perspective, will provide the leadership and drive to help take our growth and modernisation work forward.

“Chris has done a tremendous job over the last two years, including the successful launch of the London Makes It Possible campaign to articulate why businesses should look to London for their insurance, and the active engagement with government and Parliament to ensure the market’s position is well understood through the Brexit process.”

Clare Lebecq said: “The LMG has become a strong force for cross market collaboration and action to resolve challenges faced by all market participants. Its ability to speak with one voice on vital issues such as the UK’s withdrawal from Europe and making London a more efficient place to do business has meant that there has been real progress in many areas. I am delighted to be taking over from Chris, building on the great work he has led, and working with the market to help London maintain and build on its position as the undisputed global market for specialty commercial (re)insurance.”

Clare Lebecq is currently Operations Director at JLT Speciality, part of the Jardine Lloyd Thompson Group providing wholesale and retail insurance broking, risk management and claims consulting services.
