Charles Taylor Managing Agency appoints new CEO


Charles Taylor Managing Agency (CTMA) has appointed Colin Grint as Chief Executive Officer.  He will also join the board of CTMA.  The appointment is subject to regulatory approval and Colin is expected to take up his role later in 2018.

Launched in 2015, CTMA manages The Standard Syndicate (Syndicate 1884).

Colin Grint is currently Chief Executive of Capita Managing Agency, manager of Probitas syndicate 1492 and former manager of Allied World Syndicate 2232, which gained Lloyd's approval in 2014 to become its own managing agency.

Colin has over 25 years’ experience in Lloyd’s, London and international insurance markets.  He was previously Chief Executive of Corporate Insurance at Capita and held senior strategic, operational and broking roles at Marsh.  He has been a member of key decision-making London Market bodies, including the London Market Group, London & International Insurance Brokers' Association and Placing Platform Limited.

Robert Andrews, interim chief executive of CTMA, will continue in his current role until Colin Grint takes up his post.  He will then take up a senior strategic and risk management role in the managing agency.

Barnabas Hurst-Bannister, Chairman, CTMA said:

“CTMA has been providing managing agency services to The Standard Syndicate since 2015.  Colin’s deep knowledge of the Lloyd’s market, expertise in leading a turnkey managing agency and abilities in driving strategic change will be invaluable as we take CTMA forward.

“Robert Andrews has achieved a huge amount as interim Chief Executive and will continue in this role until Colin Grint takes up his post.  I would like to thank Robert for his excellent leadership of CTMA; the managing agency is in a far stronger position thanks to his commitment, drive and expertise.”
