RSA chief steps into the limelight.

It’s a far cry from the world of insurance, but Andy Haste, the highly regarded group chief executive of RSA, has this week taken up a non-exec role at ITV. Does this mean some more insurance-related stories will filter their way into Corrie, to follow the soap’s earlier fraudulent insurance claim story line?

Meanwhile, according to the Financial Times, Haste’s name has been popping up in City circles as an ideal candidate to lead a big bank. Under questioning from the Pink ’Un, he is responded with a ‘no comment’. The speculation will continue.
