New boss brings 30 years of experience to the role and is the former chief executive of a Lloyd’s managing agent

Deloitte has appointed Clive Buesnel as its new UK head of insurance.

Buesnel has been Deloitte’s global head of reinsurance for the past four years. He leads on a number of key insurance accounts for Deloitte and is a member of Deloitte’s global insurance executive.

Before Deloitte he was the chief executive of a Lloyd’s managing agency and a founder and executive director of Xchanging – a technology-based insurance solutions provider.

Buesnel officially stepped into the role on 1 June replacing David Rush, who is taking on the role of head of insurance for Deloitte North and South Europe.

Buesnel said: “This is a very exciting time for the UK insurance sector. We are seeing significant opportunities, as well as challenges and disruptors - such as technology and capital - changing the nature of products and services and re-shaping the value chain.

“I believe there will be a lot of change in the next few years and look forward to being at forefront of the discussions on how the sector moves forward, with specific focus on making an impact for our clients, by helping them to solve their toughest challenges.”

James O’Riordan, head of Financial Services at Deloitte, added: I’m thrilled Clive is leading on insurance for Deloitte at what is a time of significant change and development across Financial Services.

“Clive’s experience is unique, both in industry and advisory, and will help us to continue to provide the best service and advice to our clients”.
