Chief Executive Officer, RSA, UK & International
Ken Norgrove was appointed Chief Executive Officer of RSA, UK & International in January 2022. He was the CEO of RSA Scandinavia—the RSA Insurance Group’s most profitable subsidiary—from 2019 until the acquisition of RSA by IFC in June 2021. Under Mr. Norgrove’s leadership, the subsidiary delivered its best financial results in a decade, building a stable platform for sustained profitability. Prior to leading RSA Scandinavia, Mr. Norgrove was the CEO of RSA Ireland, where he also led the very successful turnaround of that business from 2014 to 2019.
Mr. Norgrove’s history with RSA dates back to 1986, including a four-year term in the UK where he set up the very successful Global Renewable Energy Business, achieving a multimillion-pound turnover within three years, and securing a leading position globally for insuring renewable energy assets. During this time, he also spearheaded a new Global Business Model—one of the most successful and profitable start-up ventures for RSA at the time, and which maintains substantial market share today. He also spent one year as a VP at Travelers Insurance and three years as CEO, Zurich General Insurance (Ireland) between 2010 and 2014 before rejoining RSA.
Mr. Norgrove is a Chartered Insurance Director, a Chartered Insurer and fellow of the Chartered Insurance Institute UK (CII). He has held many legal entity directorships (in the UK, Denmark, Ireland and Luxembourg) as well as held the position of President of Insurance Ireland and the Insurance Institute of Ireland.
