Clements Worldwide Announces Two Senior Appointments to London Operations
Clements Worldwide, the leading provider of international insurance solutions for expatriates and international organizations, today announced two senior appointments in its London office to drive continued business expansion across the globe.
Dan Francis, formerly Clements’ Managing Director in the UK, has been promoted to Vice President, Global Business Development. With over 20 years of experience holding several senior positions in the insurance industry, Dan played an instrumental role in the establishment of Clements’ European presence through acquisitions and the establishment of innovative new relationships, leading to substantial growth of the company’s business. In his new role, Dan will drive the strategic expansion of Clements’ international product distribution network and the identification and prospecting of new business opportunities in targeted insurance segments across the world.
Separately, Gareth Saunders --most recently head of sales at Willis-- has joined Clements in the role of Director of Sales, Commercial Insurance, based in London. In this position, Gareth will focus on international commercial business development, targeting NGOs, the diplomatic community, European-based global organisations and other regional commercial insurance segments. In prior roles, Gareth held sales and risk management responsibilities at GE Insurance Holdings, Marsh and other companies, building a highly successful career in the insurance industry for over 15 years.
“We congratulate Dan on his well-deserved promotion, and are thrilled to have Gareth on board. We are confident Gareth’s extensive skills and experience will be a major asset to all our clients, prospects and partners as we continue providing them with our industry-leading international commercial insurance solutions,” said Dan Tuman, Senior Vice President at Clements. “Both he and Dan are among the best professionals in the business, and they will deliver unsurpassed expertise in their new roles, enabling us to continue to meet and exceed the insurance needs of our customers in Europe and around the world.”
