Lloyd’s, the world’s leading marketplace for commercial, corporate and specialty risk solutions has today announced a new operational structure for the delivery of its transformational Blueprint Two programme following the departure of Lloyd’s Chief Operations Officer (COO) Jennifer Rigby.
Jen leaves Lloyd’s on 21 January and under the new structure Burkhard Keese, currently Lloyd’s Chief Financial Officer, will take on additional responsibility for Technology and Operations as Lloyd’s Chief Operating Officer.
Bob James, Director of Market Transformation, will be responsible for the delivery of Blueprint Two. Bob joined Lloyd’s in June 2021 to drive the uptake and adoption of the Future at Lloyd’s products and services, and in this wider role he will drive forward the strategic vision as it moves from planning to the crucial execution and adoption phase.
John Neal commented;
“Throughout the pandemic, Jen’s leadership has been crucial in building flexible solutions at pace that have enabled the Corporation and market to continue to operate effectively. Jen has established firm foundations to underpin the future success of Blueprint Two and we have now announced a new operational structure so that we are best placed to succeed and deliver on our goals. We wish Jen all the best and welcome Bob into his new role.”
Jen Rigby added;
“It has been both a privilege and a pleasure to help the Corporation and Lloyd’s market on its modernisation journey. Together we have made solid progress, and this enabled the market to adapt seamlessly to remote working during the pandemic. I am pleased to have taken the design and concepts of Blueprint Two to a point where we are ready to execute against a committed and contracted plan. My gratitude goes to the many leaders in the market who have tirelessly supported the digitalisation journey and to my team and colleagues at Lloyd’s who have also made it a fantastic five years.”
