Internal appointment replaces Debbie Painter

RSA appointed Rachel Cotton as real estate director for RSA’s risk managed business.

Cotton will be charged with leading the London real estate team to profitable growth.

She was previously global account director and has worked at RSA for over 25 years.

Cotton replaces Debbie Painter, who left RSA earlier this month.

UK risk managed and real estate director Gary Long said: “This appointment demonstrates our commitment to succession planning and I’m pleased to have filled this important role with a strong internal person. I look forward to working closely with Rachel and I’m sure she will bring a fresh perspective to our risk managed business and help to build on past successes.”
