Allied World appoints managing agency chair

Allied World Assurance Company (AWAC) has appointed Jonathan Evans as non-executive chairman of its Lloyd’s managing agency. Evans will also join AWAC’s board of directors.

Between May 2010 and March 2015, Evans served as the UK Member of Parliament for Cardiff North. He was first elected to Parliament in 1992, and has served for two decades in the House of Commons and in the European Parliament in Brussels.

Julian James, president of Allied World Global Markets, said: “We are pleased to welcome Jonathan to Allied World. The launch of our own managing agency last year was a major milestone for us, and we view our presence at Lloyd’s as a crucial part of our growth, especially in Europe and emerging territories.

“Jonathan’s knowledge and understanding across a broad range of financial services, and particularly insurance, as well as his extensive experience in Europe and with the UK national government, will be valuable as we take the business forward in the coming years.”
