Chaucer, the specialty international (re)insurance group, has appointed Johnny Bøgelund as Head of Chaucer Copenhagen. Johnny will lead the development of Chaucer’s European and Scandinavian underwriting portfolio, working with the Copenhagen, Oslo and London teams to support the long-term development and growth of Chaucer Copenhagen, which writes international specialty insurance and reinsurance business.
Johnny is a highly respected underwriter, with over 35 years of risk management and underwriting experience. He joined Chaucer in 2009 from Maersk initially working as a Marine Underwriter before adding Political Violence to his remit.
In his new role Johnny will also be responsible for growing the Danish branch of Chaucer Insurance Company DAC (which trades as Chaucer Dublin). Chaucer Dublin is integral to Chaucer’s long-term international strategy of providing brokers and clients with comprehensive specialty underwriting expertise, platform choice and broad distribution options. Chaucer Dublin is rated A- (S&P) and supported by China Re, the 8th largest reinsurance company in the world.
John Fowle, CEO and CUO at Chaucer commented:
“Johnny brings a wealth of underwriting expertise, business experience and proven leadership capabilities to Chaucer, and we all look forward to working with him in his new role. Expanding our European presence through understanding clients’ exposures and tailoring solutions is an important strategic goal for Chaucer and Johnny’s drive and insight will significantly support us in achieving this.
I would also like to thank Gero Michel, as he steps down from his role as Head of Chaucer Copenhagen. He has provided strong leadership and greatly contributed to our business. We wish him the greatest success for the future.”
Johnny Bøgelund added:
“This is an exciting new challenge for me and I look forward to working with my colleagues in Scandinavia and London as we develop our position further as a valued Insurer and Reinsurer.”
