Davies installs group chief transformation officer to drive global growth

Insurance service provider  Davies has appointed a new group chief transformation officer as it positions for further international growth through innovation and digital transformation.

David Leedham (pictured) has been appointed to lead Davies’ transformation and M&A integration teams on a global basis, including in the US, where the group has established and expanded its operations through a combination of strong organic and M&A growth in recent years.

Leedham joined Davies in 2018, through the acquisition of the Ember Group, where he had been CEO. He has since led the business’ growth and integration as it formed a new consulting unit in Davies.

Dan Saulter, group CEO of Davies, said: “I congratulate David on his well-deserved promotion to Group Chief Transformation Officer. David has been instrumental in the successful growth of our Consulting business in recent years. He has a strong track record of executing transformational change for our clients, and I am looking forward to working with him as he does the same for us. I am also thrilled that once again we’ve been able to promote internally; investing in our people and giving them opportunities for career development is central to our success.”

Leedham said: “I am excited to move into this role which will see me working across the whole Davies business and internationally as well. As the global insurance market continues to face external pressures & challenges, Davies is committed to investing in technology to help our clients weather these more turbulent times.”
