Zurich is pleased to announce that Dave Smith will remain as CEO for its UK General Insurance business for the next eight months, after which time he is planning to retire from the business.


Smith, formerly managing director of Zurich’s UK Commercial Broker division, stepped in as interim CEO following the departure of predecessor Steve Lewis last month.

Since then, he and the UKGI Executive team have worked hard to ensure that the business keeps firmly focused on delivering to its plan and long term strategy.

To ensure this stability and drive continues while a thorough search for a new CEO takes place, Smith , who has been with Zurich for 26 years, will remain in place until the end of the first quarter of next year.
