Hiscox has – subject to regulatory approval – appointed Tom Shewry as CFO for its UK business and Hiscox Insurance Company Limited...

Reporting to Hiscox UK’s CEO, Bob Thaker, Shewry has spent over 20 years in general insurance working in a variety of commercial roles. Shewry joined Hiscox in 2018 as Director of Group Finance where he led the development of the group finance function, establishing new processes and capabilities before becoming CFO for Hiscox UK on an interim basis in September this year.

He brings deep and valuable experience to the role of CFO and is a welcome addition to our management team as we continue to grow the business while focusing on delivering great service to our customers and brokers.”
