Formerly the Chief Operating Officer (COO) overseeing Sedgwick’s operations in the UK, New Zealand, Middle East, Africa, and Asia, Gibson brings over 18 years of leadership experience in the insurance industry.
Gibson, recognised for his decades of expertise in operational claims management and colleague development, also holds a role on Sedgwick’s global environmental, social, and governance (ESG) committee.
In light of Gibson’s new role, Paul White, who previously served as Sedgwick CEO for the UK, New Zealand, Middle East, Africa, and Asia, will now continue to oversee Sedgwick’s business in the UK and other international territories as the regional CEO.
Gibson said: “I am honoured to step into this new role as CEO and to continue to grow Sedgwick’s business and resources in the UK. 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.”
White commented: “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. 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.”
