Hayley Robinson to head RSA Global Specialty Lines UK

Hayley Robinson has been appointed Director of RSA Global Specialty Lines (GSL) UK with immediate effect.

Hayley is currently the Underwriting, Claims and Reinsurance Director of RSA’s Emerging Markets businesses, where she has been instrumental in growing that business over the past year. Hayley returned to RSA in 2013 after 18 months in the role of Chief Underwriting Officer Personal Lines at Aviva. Prior to this she led RSA’s Latin American Underwriting and Claims business for five years, where among her other achievements she was responsible for setting up and growing our GSL businesses in Latin America.

Hayley replaces Paul Greensmith, who is leaving to take up a role at Catlin as Chief Underwriting Officer – Insurance for the London underwriting hub.  In addition, Tara Kneafsey, Director of SME and Delegated Business, has also decided to pursue a new challenge as UK Managing Director for Wonga Group’s UK consumer loans business. The process to appoint a replacement is already underway.

Jon Hancock , Managing Director, UK Commercial said: "I’m delighted to announce that Hayley Robinson has been appointed as Director of our UK Global Specialty Lines. Hayley’s appointment demonstrates our commitment to succession planning and I’m pleased to have been able to fill this important role with a strong internal person, with a great knowledge of and track record in Global Specialty Lines. I look forward to working closely with Hayley and know she will be a great addition to our UK Commercial Executive team. In addition, I’d like to thank both Paul and Tara for their dedication and commitment to the business over the years and being valued members of the Commercial Executive team.  I wish them both the very best of luck in their new roles.”
