QBE announces the appointment of Ceri Stokoe as Chief Information officer, European Operations and Nathan Fuller as Chief Operations Officer, International to its International Executive Management Board.

Effective from 1 December 2022, subject to regulatory approval, both internal promotions will report to Jason Harris, CEO, QBE International.

Ceri joined QBE in 2016 as the Head of Application Services, before becoming the Director of Strategy and Transformation in 2019 and subsequently Chief Information Officer in January 2020. She will join the Executive Management Board, responsible for IT Strategy and Change Transformation, as well as take on additional responsibilities for Business Transformation Consulting, Transformation Governance and Data & MI.

Nathan joined QBE in 2004 as a Senior Claims Adjustor and has held a number of roles across the claims function, playing a key role on the Claims Executive for the last four years in his most recent position as Head of Core Claims. Nathan will be responsible for International Underwriting Operations for both Insurance and Reinsurance in addition to Corporate Real Estate Solutions, Health & Safety, Procurement and Risk and Resilience.

Jason Harris comments “I am delighted to have Ceri and Nathan join our Executive Management Board, not only because we were able to draw on our existing talent base but also because their appointments support the evolution of our business. Consistently delivering a superior service to our customers is at the heart of our strategic agenda and with strong growth ambitions across our UK and European footprint, ongoing modernisation in our technology and operational approach will be central to success.”

The elevation and broadening of remit of the Chief Information Officer role, along with the expansion of scope of the Chief Operations Officer role follows the departure of Joe Gordon, Chief Operating Officer, European Operations at the end of the year. An internal search will start to replace Nathan in his role as Head of Core Claims.
