Apollo taps Lloyd’s Spink as group chief operating officer

Independent specialist re/insurer Apollo Syndicate Management has appointed Hayley Spink as new group chief operating officer.

Spink was most recently interim head of operations at Lloyd’s, leading its business services and working strategy. She has also served in several senior positions within Lloyd’s since 2007, including head of global operations, director of Lloyd’s Brexit Programme and programme manager of Lloyd’s China Insurance Company. Between 2000 and 2007, she worked at HSBC, where she managed the operational strategies across various departments.

Spink brings over 20 years’ management experience in the insurance and financial industry. She will join Apollo upon completion of current contractual obligations.

David Ibeson, group CEO at Apollo, said: “Apollo has been growing strategically in the past few years and we are in a strong position to benefit from a range of market opportunities, with firm capital backing secured for further expansion in 2021.

"Hayley’s significant experience and capabilities will be instrumental in supporting our overall business development and building out our presence in the international speciality markets. We are very pleased to have her joining us and the team and I look forward to working closely with her to further developing Apollo as one of the leading managing agencies at Lloyd’s.”
