The new CEO joins Tysers during a time of volatility in the London and global insurance markets

London market wholesale broker Tysers has selected a new chief executive, it announced today.

Clive Buesnel has held several top roles in the global insurance market, most recently as senior partner, vice chairman and UK head of insurance at Deloitte.

Before that Buesnel worked at business technology and service provider Xchanging as a founding member and executive director of the insurance business. 

Commenting on his appointment, Buesnel said it was ”a really interesting time in the global insurance industry, especially in the London Market with the current market dynamics and the change we will see over the next few years”.

”Tysers is a unique platform that is well-positioned to take advantage of these dynamics in London and internationally.

”As a truly independent broker with a 200-year legacy, entrepreneurial culture and deep long-term client relationships, it is a beacon for talented insurance professionals who share a passion for delivering solutions for clients in partnership with the markets.

”Furthermore, through its history of executing and integrating highly strategic and complementary acquisitions, Tysers has significant scale and resources to deliver the combination of capabilities necessary to win into the future – leveraging the excellent core broking capabilities and relationships of today and developing complimentary data and digital capabilities.”

Co-head of global broking at the firm Jason Collins said ”through his deep knowledge of the market, strategic view of the insurance and broking landscape, a track record of business leadership and delivering change, Clive is uniquely well-suited to lead the Company through its next phases of growth.”

Collins’ over co-head David Abraham added that Buesnel ”shares a common passion for our independent, entrepreneurial culture and clearly recognises the significant opportunity ahead”. 

Buesnel’s appointment is subject to the standard regulatory approval.

Earlier this month Tysers appointed former chief executive of the Association of Lloyd’s Members (ALM) Belinda Schofield as its new independent non-executive director.

At the start of the yeah Tysers’ parent group Integro bought Risk Transfer Group (RTG), the privately-owned parent company of independent specialist Lloyd’s broker RFIB.
