Neon appoints Richard Heppell as Chief Financial Officer

Appointment of highly experienced finance executive completes Neon's senior leadership team

Neon is pleased to announce the appointment of Richard Heppell as CFO, effective Monday 20th November.

Most recently CFO at MS Amlin, Richard oversaw the complex integration of the Amlin and Mitsui Sumitomo Insurance Lloyd’s syndicates, having previously been Finance Director at Mitsui Sumitomo. Prior to this, Richard held a range of senior corporate finance roles at QBE.

With nearly 30 years spent in finance within the insurance sector, Richard arrives at Neon with extensive experience of supporting the growth and development of Lloyd’s businesses. Richard will oversee Neon’s finance function, manifesting the discipline and structure required by the business as it continues to grow.

Heppell’s appointment comes at a time of ongoing expansion for Neon, with the opening of its Bermuda office in 2016, the acquisition of Sapphire Underwriters, the launch of Neon Italy, and the joint venture MGAs of Tarian and Chord Re in partnership with Beat Capital in 2017.

Martin Reith, Neon Group Chief Executive commented:

“I am thrilled to welcome Richard to Neon, where his experience of multifaceted integrations and business transformation will contribute directly to us achieving our strategic aspirations. His track-record shows continued delivery in the management of high performing finance functions for Lloyd’s businesses and this knowledge will prove valuable as we continue on our exciting trajectory.”

“I look forward to Richard joining our Executive Committee, where we continue to invest in accessing the best quality business and capitalise on the considerable pipeline of opportunities we have identified.”
