Asta strengthens senior team as Karen Green joins board

Asta, the leading third-party managing agent at Lloyd’s, today announces the appointment of Karen Green to the board of Asta Managing Agency, as independent non-executive director and chair of the risk committee.

Green brings a wealth of experience to Asta: she is a non-executive director at Admiral Insurance Group and Phoenix Group and she also sits on the Council of Lloyd’s.

Neil Griffiths has also been promoted to the role of chief risk officer at Asta. Griffiths was formerly head of regulatory operations, responsible for compliance and regulatory liaison. He replaces Clare Barley who will assume a new role on the board later this year.

Julian Tighe, CEO of Asta said: “We are pleased to have Karen join the board. With over 30 years of financial services experience and specifically, 20 years in the insurance industry, she has a deep insight into Lloyd’s and the international market. She will be an invaluable addition to Asta.”

“We are also excited about Neil’s appointment; he is a fantastic addition to the board. These appointments contribute to Asta strengthening its position as the leading third-party managing agent at Lloyd’s.”
