Donelan added: “We are excited to see Maggie step into her new role given her wealth of leadership experience and strong relationships within the (re)insurance industry. Our ability to attract and develop the depth of talent on our team is one of our greatest strengths and we are confident Maggie has the reputation and expertise needed to take our business forward.”
