Geraint Jones replaces Kevin Chidwick as chief financial officer

Admiral has promoted Geraint Jones to chief financial officer and executive director.

Jones replaces Kevin Chidwick who is standing down from the position to focus on his role as chief executive of Admiral’s Elephant Auto Insurance business in the US.

Jones joined Admiral in 2002 and most recently worked as deputy chief financial officer.

Chief executive Henry Engelhardt said: “Kevin’s redoubled focus on our expanding US operation will, we believe, allow him to drive forward a business with huge potential.

“I am delighted to promote Geraint to his new role as chief financial officer. Geraint has a deep understanding of Admiral’s business and culture, coupled with strong leadership and financial skills. I have no doubt that Geraint will make an important contribution to the success of Admiral in the coming years.”
