Michael Warren and Chris Blackham to step down

UK General has announced changes to its board, with director Michael Warren and non-executive director Chris Blackham both stepping down.

The Leeds-based specialist insurer said the changes were by “mutual consent” and that they would not be replacing either directors in the executive team.

Warren, who has left the business, has also resigned from the board of UK General’s subsidiary agricultural business Rural Insurance.

UK General chief executive Peter Hubbard said: “I want to thank Michael and Chris for their significant contributions to the business, and wish them every future success.”

UK General divisional heads Karen Beales (MD schemes), Mike Keating (MD commercial) and Ian Barclay (MD Rural) remain on the executive management team, reporting to Hubbard.
