John Neal has been appointed as the CEO of Lloyd's following a meeting of the Council of Lloyd's, where his appointment as successor to Inga Beale was approved unanimously.

Mr. Neal will take up his position at Lloyd's on October 15, 2018.

Mr. Neal's entire career has been associated with the Lloyd's market, first as an underwriter and later as CEO of the Ensign Managing Agency. He was most recently group CEO of QBE, a global insurance and reinsurance business with a significant Lloyd's footprint.

In this role, he was responsible for running a $14 billion gross written premium business with over 14,000 employees in 37 countries. He brings significant experience as a global CEO who has a track record as a highly effective leader who can deliver business transformation.

Bruce Carnegie-Brown, chairman of Lloyd's, said, "On behalf of the market, I am delighted to welcome John to Lloyd's. His wealth of experience both at Lloyd's and internationally, including the United States, will bring new insights and fresh thinking at a challenging time for the global insurance industry.

"John will continue Lloyd's focus on delivering sustainable profitability, through a combination of underwriting discipline and market modernization. An immediate priority will be the successful launch of Lloyd's Brussels subsidiary which will enable Lloyd's to continue serving its customers in the European Economic Area after Brexit.

"I am grateful to Inga for the leadership she has provided to Lloyd's over the past 5 years, during a challenging time for the market. She has driven the market's modernization program, the success of which is evident not least in the recent rapid increase in electronic placement volumes and the launch of the Lloyd's Lab."

Commenting on his appointment, Mr. Neal added, "I am thrilled to be offered the opportunity to lead Lloyd's and will do so with the same excitement I felt when I first stepped into the underwriting room back in 1985.

"The insurance sector is facing many challenges. For 330 years the Lloyd's market has demonstrated its ability to innovate and adapt, and I look forward to playing my part to ensure this unique marketplace remains at the forefront of global commercial corporate and specialty insurance and reinsurance."
