Big four accounting firm KPMG has appointed Graham Boffey as a new insurance partner, he will join the financial services consultancy team at the firm in October.
Boffey joins after most recently acting as the head of UK distribution at Zurich Insurance Company. After starting his career at IBM and Barclays, he spent more than a decade at Aviva, where he was the CEO of Aviva Healthcare.
He will work alongside head of insurance Simon Ranger, to support clients in the UK market as they “grapple with rising costs, new risks and an unpredictable geopolitical agenda”.
Ranger said: “Graham brings with him a huge amount of experience and a practical understanding of how the industry needs to change. He’s helped some of the biggest insurers navigate some of the choppiest waters over the last few decades. I’m sure our clients will appreciate his knowledge, and most importantly, our colleagues will benefit enormously from working with him.”
Boffey added: “It’s great to be heading back to KPMG – its UK leadership team is bold and braced for change and I want to take that mentality out to clients. Customers, and society at large, are putting ever greater pressure on big businesses to demonstrate their value and nowhere is that more prevalent than in insurance; a sector designed to help people protect what’s important to them.
“Simon and the team at KPMG understand that we have to change now to be relevant in the future. I’m looking forward to getting to know the team and their clients to help them make that change.”
