Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance promoted a veteran executive to run its North America Casualty Construction business. Amour Group named a Lloyd’s of London veteran to become its latest group chief financial officer.


Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance named John Roe as head of Casualty Construction, North America, responsible for the company’s construction professional, homebuilders and construction casualty product lines and loss control.

Roe spent the last six years as Head of Construction, Eastern Region, at BHSI. He’s taking the reins of Casualty Construction from Bill Sullivan, who is retiring after a distinguished 37-year career in the insurance industry, including most recently six years leading BHSI’s efforts in the North American casualty construction marketplace.


Bermuda-based Armour Group Ltd. appointed John Parry as group chief financial officer.

Parry will assume his new position in June and report directly to the group executive committee.

A seasoned senior financial services executive with extensive insurance industry experience, Parry most recently was CFO Lloyd’s of London, where handled financial reporting of the market’s results and capital adequacy in addition to treasury and investment management. In this role, he also oversaw the tax affairs of the Society of Lloyd’s and the market in the UK and overseas. Before joining Lloyd’s in 2001, Parry was finance director of various Lloyd’s Managing Agents and is a qualified accountant.

Armour is a group of insurance and reinsurance companies that specialize in the creation and implementation of products, services and acquisitions within the run-off insurance marketplace.
