David Duclos appointed Non Executive Chairman of Lloyds Global Network

Tue 05 Feb 2019

Today Lloyd’s confirmed the appointment of David Duclos as Non-Executive Chairman of Lloyd’s Global Network, where he will play a key advisory role in the development of Lloyd’s international network.

David will take up the position at Lloyd’s immediately. With extensive international industry experience spanning four decades across a number of executive roles, including CEO of QBE North America (2013-2016) and Chief Executive of XL Group’s global insurance operations (2008-2011), David’s non-executive director appointment further bolsters Lloyd’s leadership team following the appointment of CFO Burkhard Keese. 

Dave is a fantastic asset to Lloyd’s and I’m delighted he has agreed to join us. He brings with him an incredible wealth of knowledge and insight which will be of huge value in the months ahead as we put in place a new geographical focus, concentrating on the developed markets that have the greatest potential for future growth.

We’ll be looking at new opportunities in the US, in Europe through Lloyd’s Brussels, together with those emerging markets where we are likely to see the best return on our investment. Dave’s leadership and expertise will ensure that Lloyd’s is better positioned to maximise these opportunities.
John Neal, Chief Executive Officer of Lloyd’s
I am pleased to be joining Lloyd’s in this advisory capacity at a period of great opportunity for the market, and to work closely with the Lloyd’s leadership team. Lloyd’s international network is a strong and much-admired asset for the market and I will bring my experiences in global insurance to further strengthen Lloyd’s position in the US and across the world.
David Duclos, Non-Executive Chairman of Lloyd’s Global Network
