Lloyd’s Market Association (LMA), which represents the interests of the Lloyd’s underwriting community, has appointed Sheila Cameron as its new CEO.
Cameron will replace David Gittings, who has been at the helm for 12 years. Gittings will step down from the role at the end of the year.
“I look forward to working together with Lloyd’s on the evolution of its strategy, a renewed focus on our customers and the delivery of market modernisation,” Cameron noted.
Cameron currently heads operational and change management activities at Navigators International. This includes its Lloyd’s business and global platforms in Europe, Asia and Latin America.
At the same time, she chairs the LMA operations committee and has a seat on the target operating model board.
In addition, she previously served as the director of group operations at Hiscox and COO of claims at Xchanging. She also had a stint at Accenture.
LMA chairman Neil Maidment said: “David has worked successfully over many years to ensure that the interests of market firms have been effectively represented and we will be sorry to see him go. I would like to take this opportunity to thank him on behalf of our members for all he has achieved.
“Sheila’s background and experience in the London Market will be invaluable in driving the LMA’s agenda forward.”
