Thomas F. Motamed, chairman and chief executive of CNA Financial Corporation, has been appointed chairman of the CNA Insurance Company Limited (CNA Europe) Board of Directors, effective as of August 18, following approval from the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA). He also serves as chairman of the Hardy Board of Directors.
CNA noted that the appointment coincides with the recent appointment of David Brosnan as chief executive of CNA Europe, also effective on the 18th of August 2014. Brosnan will continue to serve as the chief executive of Hardy, reporting to Motamed in his role as chief executive of CNA.
CNA also referred to the recent transition of John Hennessy who will become president and COO of CNA Canada, in mid-September, reporting to Brosnan. He has led CNA Europe since 2009.
“These changes are part of a broad strategy to serve the unique and expanding needs of multinational customers,” Motamed said. “Together, we will work to strengthen our international capabilities and further enhance our position as a global leader.”
