The Hanover Insurance Group promoted or brought in three new executives to help run Chaucer Syndicates Ltd., its international member company that underwrites various business at Lloyd’s of London.
Robert Stuchbery has been promoted to president of international operations at The Hanover. In his new role, Stuchbery will oversee Chaucer’s operations as well as development of Chaucer’s distribution strategies. He was Chaucer CEO since 2010, but has held a number of executive positions there over 207 years.
Meanwhile, Johan Slabbert will take over as Chaucer Syndicates Ltd. CEO as of Nov. 1, moving up from his current role as Chaucer chief financial officer. Slabbert held the CFO slot since joining Chaucer in 2013. He’s an insurance industry veteran who previously held various financial and business development positions with AIG in Africa, Europe, the Far East, Latin America and North America.
And then there’s Robert Callan, who is slated to start at Chaucer as of Dec. 1 as CFO. Most recently, he was at Catlin Group Ltd. (now XL Catlin) where he was UK chief financial officer. He has held other financial executive slots over a 20-plus-year industry finance career with Aon Ltd., Visa Financial Ltd. and Eurostar (UK) Ltd.
The CEO and CFO appointments at Chaucer are subject to both Lloyd’s and regulatory approval.
