CHARLIE ROZES is set to relieve Jardine Lloyd Thompson CEO Mike Reynolds of his group finance director duties.
JLT announced in August 2014 that Reynolds had been appointed chief executive officer of JLT Re, but would retain his position as group finance director until the appointment of his successor, reports sister publication Post.
Rozes, pictured, who was previously global head of investor relations at Barclays, will join JLT on 1st September 2015 and, subject to Financial Conduct Authority approval, will become the firm’s group finance director, reporting to group chief executive Dominic Burke.
He will also join the board as an executive director and become a member of the group executive committee. Following this, Reynolds will step down from the Board on that date, but will remain a member of the group executive committee.
Commenting on the appointment, Burke said: “I am delighted to welcome Charlie to JLT. He is a highly-regarded and extremely accomplished finance professional whose extensive experience in the financial services sector will be of immense value to JLT. Charlie will play a pivotal role in the next stage of JLT’s growth and I very much look forward to working with him.
“I would like to thank Mike for the excellent contribution he made as group finance director, in particular, the instrumental role he played in the acquisition of Towers Watson Re in 2013. I have tremendous confidence in his ability to lead JLT Re and know that he will continue to take this important business from strength to strength.”
Rozes added: “I am delighted to be joining JLT at such an exciting time in their development. I look forward to working with Dominic and the rest of JLT’s leadership to drive the next phase in JLT’s growth.”
