Glenn Brace joins insurer from Xchanging

Catlin Group has revealed Glenn Brace (pictured) will join the insurer in early 2013 as group claims director.

Brace is moving from Xchanging where he has been executive director of Xchanging Claims Services in London since February 2011.

Brace will be responsible for Catlin’s worldwide claims operations, including the claims functions of all six of the group’s underwriting hubs.

He will be based in London and succeeds Nick Sinfield, who was previously promoted to chief executive of Catlin’s London/UK underwriting hub.

Brace has also served as chief claims officer of Equitas, which was acquired by Berkshire Hathaway in 2007.

He will report to Catlin Group chief operating officer Paul Jardine, who said: “I am delighted to announce that Glenn Brace will join Catlin as group claims director. Glenn has distinguished himself as one of the world’s top claims professionals, making a significant contribution to the ultimate success of Equitas and, most recently, serving as executive director of Xchanging Claims Services.”
