MS Amlin Underwriting Limited (MS AUL), the Lloyd’s (re)insurer, has announced the appointment of Margot Cronin to the MS AUL Board...

Effective from 1 January 2021, Margot will join the Board as a notified independent Non-Executive Director (iNED), subject to regulatory approval.


A proven Board director at executive and non-executive level, Cronin has over 30 years of leadership experience and spent the last 18 years of her executive career with Aviva in several senior, group and regional roles. She also holds Board positions at HSBC Life, Prudential International and Tesco Underwriting, where she also chairs the Risk Committee.


Cronin will also become a member of the Risk, Audit, Underwriting Oversight and Nominations Committees for MS AUL. She will assume Chairmanship of the Risk Committee from when the current Chair, Gilles Bonvarlet, steps down. Gilles will remain on the board until 31 March 2021 to allow for a smooth handover to Margot.


Johan Slabbert, CEO of MS Amlin Underwriting Ltd, commented: “I am delighted to announce that Margot will join MS AUL as a notified independent Non-Executive Director (iNED). Margot is an accomplished and experienced industry practitioner and her appointment further demonstrates our ability to attract leading talent to the business. I am confident that her years of market expertise, combined with strong leadership capabilities, will further strengthen the MS AUL Board as we continue to implement our plans for the business.”


“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Gilles, who retires from the MS AUL board, for his exceptional contributions to the business over the years. We wish him the very best for the future.”
