Fidelis poaches new claims head from Amlin


Fidelis has recruited a new head of claims from rival Amlin Group in a move that said it hopes will enhance its customer service.

David Turner joins as head of claims for Fidelis Insurance Holdings, effective immediately, after spending more than 30 years at Amlin Group, most recently as global claims director responsible for all of Amlin’s regulated entities. He will be based in London.

Patricia Roufca, group chief operating officer and group general counsel, said: “Claims is a vital function for any (re)insurance company. At Fidelis, we always strive to offer our clients and brokers the best service, so we are delighted to welcome someone with David’s seniority and experience in the market across multiple lines of business.

“Fidelis has taken a quantum step forward over the last twelve months in terms of its capital, ratings, adding to its shareholder base and building out its offerings and team. David is the latest in that progression as we establish Fidelis as a true leader able to respond to our clients’ needs and to exceed expectations.”

David Turner added: “I’m excited to be joining Fidelis at a time when it is really taking on the role of a market leader. I believe passionately in the value that a proactive and experienced claims function adds to any company. I am sure I can help to achieve the ambitions that Fidelis has to provide truly excellent service to all its clients as it grows and expands."
