Stuart Vann stepped down as Esure chief executive in January, despite soaring profits and sizeable growth
Esure interim chief executive Darren Ogden has hinted that the insurer’s new chief executive could come from outside the insurance industry.
Now, Ogden has said that Esure is looking to replace Vann with someone with “broad” expertise, possibly from “outside the industry”.
Ogden revealed that the insurer wants a chief executive with strong digital experience, who is “data-driven”, to push its digital customer proposition and strategy.
Earlier this morning, chairman Peter Wood said Esure is looking for “new leadership, steeped in digital and data experience to take the business to the next level.”
Wood added: “Our search for a successor has commenced and we are looking for a leader with significant expertise and experience in a broad spectrum of customer-facing businesses.”
