Catalina makes two appointments to its UK boards

Catalina’s UK subsidiary has appointed Anthony Mason as chair, and Penny Shaw as non executive director, of its UK boards.

The appointments follow the planned step down of Tim Cox and David O’Connor, the current long term chair and independent non executive director, respectively, in March 2021.

Mason is a qualified actuary with experience across investments, audit and risk in the insurance industry. He started Lane Clark & Peacock’s general insurance consultancy in the late 1980s, specialising in long-tail liabilities, before becoming a managing partner. In 2007 he became chief executive of the Medical Protection Society. He has also held various non executive and consultancy roles, including with MedPro a Berkshire Hathaway company.

Shaw has over 25 years of experience in the insurance industry and is a qualified actuary and risk professional. She was most recently group chief risk officer for The Hanover and its subsidiary Chaucer, latterly supporting Chaucer through its owner transition. She holds several non executive roles.
