Sir Clive Cowdery, Chairman at Resolution Life, commented:

“Rob brings extensive life insurance knowledge and operating experience and a great track record in public and private companies. Resolution Life’s decision to form a global reinsurance and insurance company was driven by a desire to release capital for our insurance partners and deliver long term benefits to policyholders. With the benefit of Rob’s knowledge around our Board table we are even better placed to achieve this objective.”

Rob Devey, Non-Executive Director at Resolution Life, commented:

“Resolution Life has an outstanding leadership team and impressive Board and I am delighted to join the Company at this stage of its growth. The company has already announced some significant transactions and I am excited to play my role in helping to serve the needs of the in-force customer better and driving innovation within the sector.”
