Burrows' replacement must fit in with the company culture

Peter Burrows’ successor as UK chief executive of Brit should be announced by the summer, he told Insurance Times this week.

Burrows is retiring at the end of this year, and Brit has appointed headhunters to search for a replacement.

Burrows said he would be “disappointed” if an appointment had not been made by the summer.

He said: “[Group chief executive] Dane [Douetil] will be looking for someone with a successful track record, who will fit in with the culture of this organisation.”
