Formerly director of Financial Services Risk at EY, Sansom was seconded to Lloyd’s as interim CRO in October 2018. He worked previously in roles for the UK Financial Services Authority and HM Treasury, and has led a broad range of risk and regulatory engagements for EY.

“I have very much enjoyed my time at Lloyd’s, and I am delighted to be taking up the CRO role on a permanent basis,” said Sansom. “This is an exciting time for Lloyd’s, and I look forward to working with the Corporation and the market to develop the risk agenda as part of the Future at Lloyd’s.”

Lloyd’s also announced today that Annette Andrews, chief people officer, will be leaving at the end of 2019. Andrews joined Lloyd’s in January 2015 and, as well as leading the talent strategy for the Corporation as a member of the Executive Committee, she has driven market-wide initiatives including Inclusion@Lloyd’s and the annual Dive In Festival.

“Working with the Corporation has been a fantastic experience, and I have been privileged to work closely with the Lloyd’s market and wider sector. Together we have made considerable progress,” said Andrews.

“After five years, I have decided that, both professionally and personally, I am ready for a new challenge. I remain committed to Lloyd’s and to ensuring a smooth transition to my successor.”
