Lloyd's confirms David Sansom as Chief Risk Office and departure of Annette Andrews, Chief People Officer

Wed 18 Sep 2019

David Sansom has been confirmed as Chief Risk Officer, subject to regulatory approval. His remit includes all areas of risk management within the Corporation as well as oversight for market-level risks. He also manages Lloyd’s relationship with regulators globally.

Formerly Director of Financial Services Risk at EY, David was seconded to Lloyd’s as Interim CRO in October 2018. He worked previously in roles for the FSA and HM Treasury, and has led a broad range of risk and regulatory engagements for EY. 

I have very much enjoyed my time at Lloyd’s and I am delighted to be taking up the CRO role on a permanent basis. This is an exciting time for Lloyd’s and I look forward to working with the Corporation and the market to develop the risk agenda as part of the Future at Lloyd’s.

We have also announced today that Annette Andrews, Chief People Officer, will be leaving at the end of 2019. Annette joined Lloyd’s in January 2015 and, as well as leading the Talent strategy for the Corporation as a member of the Executive Committee, she has driven market-wide initiatives including Inclusion@Lloyd’s and the annual Dive In Festival.

Working with the Corporation has been a fantastic experience, and I have been privileged to work closely with the Lloyd’s market and wider sector. Together we have made considerable progress. After five years, I have decided that, both professionally and personally, I am ready for a new challenge. I remain committed to Lloyd’s and to ensuring a smooth transition to my successor.

Over the past eleven months, David has added real value to Lloyd’s risk thinking and framework and I am delighted to confirm him his appointment as our Chief Risk Officer.

I am very grateful to Annette for the support she has given to Lloyd’s over the past five years, and to me personally over the past year. She leaves with our sincere thanks and best wishes for the future.
