Royal & SunAlliance's (R&SA)UK personal managing director Steve Broughton has retired, to be replaced by More Th>n managing director Adrian Brown.

His retirement after 37 years with the insurer came as R&SA announced the restructuring of its UK executive management team following Duncan Boyle's appointment as UK chief executive in April.

Boyle's appointment followed Paul Spencer's ousting after rumoured bust-ups with group chief executive Bob Mendelsohn.

The restructuring includes a move away from separate management boards for each of its customer-facing businesses, creating a single UK executive management team.

New commercial director Peter Webster will take over Broughton's job heading R&SA's UK healthcare and assistance business.

R&SA has made three external appointments: Tony Brown joins from Royal Bank of Scotland as strategy and change director, Peter Hutchison joins from Standard Chartered Bank as finance director and Mandy Perrin joins from Sun Life of Canada to be HR director. Ray Cox, previously under- writing director for UK commercial, has joined the management team as underwriting director.

Rod Kitchen, previously claims and corporate director of UK commercial, joined the team as claims director.

Adrian Brown will now cover all of the UK personal lines business as personal director, including More Th>n and all intermediary and corporate partner business.
