RSA announces 3 senior appointments for its commercial business


RSA has made a number of senior appointments in its commercial business divisions - Commercial Risk Solutions (CRS) and Global Risk Solutions (GRS) - to support their growth and development following a refocus of some commercial activities. 

Two internal appointments have been made in the Global Risk Solutions business with Calvin Gray taking on the role of Sales & Distribution Director, and Anne Mehta being appointed as Head of Governance & Control. Alex Hardy will join RSA as Sales & Distribution Director for Commercial Risk Solutions.

Having been with RSA since 2013, Calvin Gray will play a key role in establishing GRS’s new Sales & Distribution function. As one of GRS’s primary market-facing business leaders, Calvin will oversee the team responsible for developing and maintaining productive relationships with customers and broker partners.  Calvin, who starts his role with immediate effect, will also be working with product and sector leaders to agree operating principles and actions to ensure delivery of sales targets.

In March, Anne Mehta will move from her role as Lead Auditor, to take up the position of Head of Governance & Control, working with the global commercial leadership team to embed risk management and ensure compliant practice throughout the refocused GRS business.

Tony Buckle, Managing Director, Global Risk Solutions said:

“I am delighted to announce Calvin’s appointment as Director of Sales and Distribution in GRS. Calvin’s determination to use data to inform our strategy and drive our business forward is first class. He will build out our broker and customer proposition in areas where we can truly differentiate and that will stand us in good stead as we reposition our GRS portfolio.

We are also delighted to appoint Anne as our GRS Head of Governance and Control. Good governance lies at the heart of our business, and Anne will challenge us to maintain that focus as we develop our business, our specialist proposition and our support structure.

These appointments reflect not only the quality of the bench at RSA but our determination to stretch our up-and-coming talent in senior roles.”

Alex Hardy will take on the role of Sales & Distribution Director for RSA’s Commercial Risk Solutions business, which primarily serves UK brokers and companies through regional and e-trading operations. Alex joins CRS from specialist broker-only insurer ERS to further strengthen valuable broker relationships and lead continued new business growth. Alex joins the team with a wealth of experience having worked across the UK, Ireland and London market holding a number of senior leadership positions and will be the driving force behind CRS’s enhanced broker relationships and growing sales channels.

Rob Gibbs, Managing Director, Commercial Risk Solutions said:

"Alex is a great fit for CRS, and his track record of relationship management and innovative leadership will be invaluable as we build on the current momentum and create maximum impact in the market.

Alex joining the team is testament to the quality of talent that our commercial business is able to attract externally."
