Interim Partners appoints new insurance practice head

He most recently worked for Hays, where he was UK Head of Insurance and principally involved in helping insurance companies build change management and transformation teams. He has previously worked at Eames Consulting Group where he was Head of Europe.
He has recruited interim managers for a diverse range of insurance clients including Marsh, Old Mutual, Hiscox, Liberty, and Allianz.
Johnson will be working with Interim Partners’ new and existing insurance clients, including Aviva, RSA and the Co-operative Group’s financial services arm, placing C-suite executives across the London and Lloyds market as well as broking, general insurance and life and pensions.
Adam Kyriacou, Partner at Interim Partners, comments: “We are very pleased to welcome Ben to our team. Ben has an in depth knowledge of the insurance sector following his time as UK Head of Insurance at Hays, and his considerable experience in building large-scale change management teams fits very well with the broader insurance practice areas that we cover.”
“We are seeing a significant amount of demand for interim managers from our clients in the insurance sector. Change management executives are playing a key role particularly as the sector sees increased interest from private equity investment, and firms look to fine tune many of their business practices.”
Ben Johnson adds, “Interim Partners has an excellent reputation in the insurance and financial services interim recruitment market. I’m delighted to join the team at what should be an exciting time for the insurance sector.”
