The ’appointment marks an important moment in our strategy’, says chief executive

Clear Group has appointed ex-RSA boss Mandy Hunt as the new managing director of its managing general agent (MGA) business.

The move will see Hunt, who stepped down as RSA’s chief underwriting officer for commercial in August 2023, join the main Clear operating board.

Her appointment comes after the broker diversified its portfolio in 2023 by acquiring three MGA businesses.

This includes Profile Underwriting, One Commercial Specialty and a 50% shareholding in Thomond Underwriting, which is based in Ireland.

“I’m really excited to lead Clear’s MGA proposition,” Hunt said.

“We have some great MGA businesses and people from which we can strengthen our market position.

“Watching from the sidelines, I have always been impressed at how Clear has progressed, grown and the strides it has made. The staff at Clear make it what it is and I’m delighted to now be part of that team and the exciting future we have in front of us.”


Back in August 2023, Hunt said she would be leaving RSA to spend time with family before pursuing a “new and exciting challenge”.

She joined the insurer in 1998 and held several senior roles, including lead trader for liability and schemes as well as regional manager.

In 2016, she became the managing director for RSA’s ICCI business, a local insurer in the Channel Islands.

Mike Edgeley, Clear’s group chief executive, said: “It is testament to the strength of the Clear business that we have been able to attract someone of Mandy’s calibre.

“Her appointment marks an important moment in our strategy as we continue to build our MGA capability for brokers.

“The Clear MGA strategy is growing at pace as we continue to attract underwriting firms and teams who we can develop and thrive by broadening and enhancing their proposition.”
