One of Gloucester's biggest private employers has revealed the names of two new board members.

Francois-Xavier Boisseau and Angus Winther haved joined the specialist financial services group, which employs more than 500-plus staff at its city headquarters.

Mark Hews, group chief executive officer of the business, Ecclesiastical Insurance, said: "The experience and knowledge that Angus and Francois bring to the board will help us build on the commercial success we have enjoyed so that we can continue to do good work, both protecting more of our country's heritage and improve people's lives."

Mr Boisseau has more than 30 years' experience working in the insurance industry and was CEO Insurance of Ageas UK until December 2018.

Prior to that he was CEO of Groupama and non-executive chairman of Lark, Bollington and Carole Nash and also spent 15 years at AXA in a variety of senior roles including Underwriting and Claims Director.

Mr Boisseau is also a non-executive director at Lloyd's managing agency Argo, which he joined in January 2018.

Mr Winther co-founded Lexicon Partners, a London based investment banking advisory firm where he specialised in advising clients in the insurance and financial services sectors.

He was closely involved in its leadership until Evercore acquired it in 2011 and served as a senior advisor at Evercore until October 2016.

He is currently a non-executive director of Lloyd's managing agent, Hiscox Syndicates.
