LONDON, 13 November 2023 – Sedgwick, a leading global provider of technology-enabled risk, benefits and integrated business solutions, has named Neil Gibson its CEO in the UK.
Gibson most recently served as COO of Sedgwick’s operations in the UK, New Zealand, Middle East, Africa and Asia. He brings to his new role more than 18 years of insurance industry leadership experience and decades of operational claims management and colleague development expertise. Gibson also serves on Sedgwick’s global environmental, social and governance (ESG) committee.
“I am honoured to step into this new role as CEO and to continue to grow Sedgwick’s business and resources in the UK,” Gibson said. “From my four years as COO to this new role, my focus remains on our people, as they are our most important asset in the work we do. I am committed to delivering on our values and objectives for the benefit of our 2,000+ UK colleagues and the valued clients we serve.”
With Gibson’s appointment, Paul White — who has been serving as Sedgwick CEO for the UK, New Zealand, Middle East, Africa and Asia — will retain oversight of Sedgwick’s business in the UK and other international territories as regional CEO.
“Given Neil’s successful four-year tenure as COO, he is the natural choice to lead and drive our UK business to the next level,” White said. “His industry experience and outstanding knowledge of our local business will serve him well in delivering the best possible service to our clients, and his involvement in Sedgwick’s activities will pave the way for his continued success. Neil brings significant value to his new position as Sedgwick continues to invest in the UK market.”
