John will be a valuable addition to Aspen and brings significant expertise in banking and capital markets, risk management and a broad understanding of insurance markets, as well as experience in managing global teams and strong familiarity with regulatory and reporting standards. I look forward to working closely with John as we continue to build on Aspen’s diversified business approach and position the Company to capitalize on an improving rating environment in the commercial P&C markets.”
