11 July 2013: LONDON – Lloyd’s Insurer Advent is pleased to announce the appointment of Nigel Fitzgerald as Chief Executive Officer effective 1 July 2013. His appointment completes the planned transition to the CEO role since Fitzgerald’s arrival at Advent on 1 November 2012. He succeeds James Migliorini who became CEO on 1 January 2012 and who will continue as a director of Advent.

Commenting on this progress, Fitzgerald said: “We are very excited about the future for Advent. We moved quickly to invest in a long-term plan that positions Advent in the market as a highly focussed specialist insurer in our chosen classes of business. We have a 40-year history at Lloyd’s through Syndicate 780, a recognised brand, and our team of professionals is committed to building a strong, entrepreneurial underwriting company.”
