Chief Risk Officer appointed and further redefining of reporting lines in Retail Broking

Bluefin continues to make structural changes to its Risk and Retail Broking operations. 

Jane Bean, previously Risk and Compliance Director, has been appointed Chief Risk Officer. The role encompasses group-wide risk oversight and management for Bluefin including its broking activities, Bluefin Underwriting and Bluefin Network. 

Bluefin’s London Market Broking (LMB) team will now report into Martin Wicks, Regional Managing Director for London & South East, aligning the LMB closer to the rest of the Retail Broking Division. Martin will continue to report directly to CEO Robert Organ until a Managing Director for Retail Broking Division South is appointed.

Robert Organ, CEO of Bluefin commented: “With the continued development of our business, including that of Bluefin Underwriting, there is an ever increasing requirement for robust group-wide risk oversight, reporting and management. Jane’s change in title reflects the evolution of her role as a statutory board director and underlines our commitment to ensuring effective risk management across the group.

“Similarly, moving the London Market Broking team within the Retail Broking Division further strengthens our retail broking client proposition, particularly with our London team, where we have aligned our international network with LMB to enhance the service we provide to these clients. I have no doubt these changes will help us continue our business development in a sustainable way.”
