Lloyd’s announced the promotion of Pat Talley to Regional Director for Lloyd’s America’s Central Region. He will “be responsible for the Illinois and Kentucky offices [the two states in the U.S. where Lloyd’s is an addmitted carrier], along with market development activities in the other central U.S states, in order to expand Lloyd’s America’s presence in the region,” said the announcement.
Hank Watkins, President of Lloyd’s America, commented: “We are excited that Pat has accepted this important new challenge. Pat will continue as an important leader and voice for the Lloyd’s market in the Central Region, he has the right combination of experience and vision to successfully guide our operational and market development efforts there.
“We remain committed to educating U.S. stakeholders about Lloyd’s, in the process facilitating brokers’ access to the market and maintaining the positive public profile that has distinguished Lloyd’s through much of its history.”
Talley stated that Lloyd’s first priority in the region is to “integrate, streamline and refocus the two licensed territories, Kentucky and Illinois. Second, there will be a large emphasis placed on market development which will require implementing a strategy and support platform to expand market development activities throughout the diverse Central Region.”
Talley, who has headed Lloyd’s Kentucky office since 2006, will remain in that post. Later this year he will “be joined by Lloyd’s Chief Executive Richard Ward and Director of North America Sean McGovern to open the redesigned Chicago office.
