Lloyd’s confirmed the appointment of former United States Senator John E. Sununu as a new member of its Council for a three-year term, beginning February 6, 2019.
During his tenure in the Senate, John served on the Senate Banking Committee, where he actively prioritised insurance issues, and the Senate’s subcommittee on Science, Technology and Innovation.
He now acts as a senior policy advisor for Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP, an international law firm headquartered in Washington, and holds office as a non-executive director for the publicly traded companies Boston Scientific Corporation and Afiniti Inc. He holds Engineering degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and earned his Master of Business degree from Harvard University.
His appointment to the Council ensures that Lloyd’s has outstanding US political and regulatory experience to draw from, which is essential for the significant amount of business Lloyd’s does in the US. John’s experience and ongoing interest in technology and innovation will also help Lloyd’s seize new opportunities in the digital world.
