Brian Pomeroy remains on insurer’s main board

QBE European Operations chairman Sir Brian Pomeroy has stepped down after eight years and been replaced by Tim Ingram.

Pomeroy will remain on the group board, which he joined in June 2014.

QBE said in a statement: “Brian’s commitment to QBE EO has been exemplary and he has proven to be an invaluable support to the business.

“Although he leaves QBE in Europe, we are delighted that he is remaining within the QBE Group as a member of the group board.”

Ingram was appointed as a non-executive director in March this year. He will now chair QBE Underwriting Ltd, QBE Insurance (Europe) Ltd and QBE Re (Europe), subject to regulatory approval.
