Optio Group, the specialty MGA, today announces the appointment of David Robinson as chief executive officer, effective immediately.
Robinson was initially appointed by Optio in March 2022 as managing director and his promotion reflects his work to optimise operational excellence across the group’s underwriting, claims and data support functions. He has also been at the forefront of driving Optio’s expansion across multiple lines and geographies, notably in establishing Optio Re MENA Ltd, which began trading February 2023.
He will continue to report to executive chairman Matthew Fosh and his appointment follows a strong year of growth in revenue and profitability for Optio Group.
Fosh said: “I am delighted to announce David’s appointment as CEO of Optio Group. David has had a major impact since he joined, accelerating growth across the business and allowing us to achieve important strategic milestones, including establishing operations in MENA.”
