International Underwriting Association Elects Zurich’s Kuchinski as ChairmanPage Visited: 22
Robert Kuchinski, head of Commercial Insurance at Zurich UK, has been elected as the new chairman of the International Underwriting Association (IUA). He replaces Patrick Tiernan who recently announced he would be leaving his role as managing director UK Commercial Lines & Global Corporate & Specialty at Aviva to become chief of markets at Lloyd’s of London.
Kuchinski has been a member of the IUA Board since June 2019 and was previously one of two IUA deputy chairmen with Phil Hobbs, managing director at Liberty Specialty Markets. Hobbs will continue in that role as the single IUA deputy chairman.
“It is far from unprecedented to see IUA board members move on to very senior and responsible positions elsewhere within our industry, and I would like to wish Patrick Tiernan well as he prepares for his new job at Lloyd’s,” said IUA Chief Executive Dave Matcham.
“Rob Kuchinski is already an influential and respected member of the IUA board and ideally placed to take on the role of chairman. He will be an effective leader for the London company marketm, and I look forward to working with him,” Matcham added.
