The appointment ‘signals MS Amlin’s continued commitment to investing in and building on our ESG expertise and capabilities’, says director of strategy and transformation
Specialty Lloyd’s (re)insurer MS Amlin Underwriting (MS AUL) has appointed Amir Sethu in the newly created role of head of sustainability and environmental, social and governance (ESG), effective this month (November 2021).
In his new role, Sethu will be responsible for the continued development and implementation of MS AUL’s ESG strategy – the business plans to launch a number of new initiatives under a broader ESG framework.
Sethu will report to Martyn Rodden, MS AUL’s director of strategy and transformation.
Sethu joins the (re)insurer from ESG focused commercial lender Lendurance, which he co-founded in Singapore in 2018.
Prior to this, Sethu spent seven years as a director at professional services firm KPMG, advising commercial firms on ESG and strategic change initiatives. He also spent eight years as group head of internal audit at Brit Insurance.
Speaking on the appointment, Rodden said: “I am delighted that Amir will be joining MS AUL in this newly created sustainability role.
“His extensive experience in the ESG and [corporate social responsibility] landscape, alongside his creative thinking and track record of developing and delivering complex projects, will undoubtedly be critical to our strategic journey and meaningful output in this rapidly evolving space.
“As the industry reflects on the road ahead, Amir’s appointment signals MS Amlin’s continued commitment to investing in and building on our ESG expertise and capabilities to support our policyholders, the market and broader global community.”
