Charles Taylor Managing Agency poaches Capita CEO to replace Robert Andrews

Charles Taylor Managing Agency (CTMA) has appointed Colin Grint as its new chief executive officer. 

Grint joins CTMA from Capita Managing Agency, who manages Probitas syndicate 1492, and will replace the outgoing interim chief executive, Robert Andrews.

Launched in 2015, CTMA manages The Standard Syndicate (Syndicate 1884).

Andrews will continue in his current role until Grint takes up his post later on this year. He will then take up a senior strategic and risk management role in the managing agency.

Barnabas Hurst-Bannister, chairman at CTMA said: “CTMA has been providing managing agency services to The Standard Syndicate since 2015. Colin’s deep knowledge of the Lloyd’s market, expertise in leading a turnkey managing agency and abilities in driving strategic change will be invaluable as we take CTMA forward.

“Robert Andrews has achieved a huge amount as interim chief executive and will continue in this role until Colin Grint takes up his post. I would like to thank Robert for his excellent leadership of CTMA; the managing agency is in a far stronger position thanks to his commitment, drive and expertise.”

The appointment is still subject o regulatory approval.
