FBD recruiting first chief commercial officer
Insurer FBD is looking for a chief commercial officer, a role newly created by chief executive Fiona Muldoon following an internal reorganisation of management responsibilities.
Muldoon wants someone to oversee sales and other commercial activities following the departure of the person who previously looked after many of the duties the job will cover. The person will be responsible for the commercial activities of the country's biggest farm insurer, which also has a substantial motor business.
Motor and property insurers like FBD face a number of challenges this year. Government is reviewing major recent increases to the cost of car insurance premiums. Insiders say premiums will continue to rise in 2016.
Insurers are also being asked to account for their refusal to insure some customers in flood-prone areas.
