Paul Swain, chief executive of Catlin Underwriting Agencies, has been named as the new chairman of Lloyd's Community Programme (LCP). He takes over from Angus Sladen, formerly of Marlborough Underwriting Agency.

As part of the scheme, volunteers help pupils in the Tower Hamlets area with their literacy, numeracy, IT skills and individual development. Last year, over 450 volunteers from the Lloyd's Market helped Tower Hamlets pupils as part of LCP.
