Hiscox confirms new UK chief financial officer


Specialist global insurer Hiscox has appointed Tom Shewry as chief financial officer (CFO) for its UK business and Hiscox Insurance Company.

Shewry has spent over 20 years in general insurance working in a variety of commercial roles. He joined Hiscox in 2018 as director of group finance where he led the development of the group finance function, establishing new processes and capabilities before becoming CFO for Hiscox UK on an interim basis in September this year.

Since taking on the role, Shewry is said to have played an important part in assessing Hiscox UK’s ongoing COVID-19 exposures and completing the business’ 2021 financial planning process.

Hiscox UK CEO Bob Thaker said: “Tom has already demonstrated strong leadership of Hiscox UK’s finance organisation during a challenging period. He brings deep and valuable experience to the role of CFO and is a welcome addition to our management team as we continue to grow the business while focusing on delivering great service to our customers and brokers.”
