Lloyd’s of London has appointed its first female deputy chair from Guy Carpenter, one of the world’s leading reinsurance brokers and part of the Marsh & McLennan group of companies.
She has sat as an elected member of Lloyd’s Council since February 2019 and has worked for the Lloyd’s market for 40 years, starting her career in medicine before moving to reinsurance broking in 1980.
Carter joined Guy Carpenter in 2010 as vice chairman of international operations and in 2018 became chairman of global capital solutions, international. She also holds positions on the company’s executive committee and board. In addition, she is chair of the Lloyd’s Charities Trust and Lloyd’s Community Programme.
Bruce Carnegie-Brown, chairman of Lloyd’s, said: “I’m delighted that Vicky has agreed to become Deputy Chair of Lloyd’s. This appointment recognises her extraordinary professional contribution to the Lloyd’s market and global (re)insurance industry over many decades. Her leadership will be vital as we progress our work in building the world’s most advanced insurance marketplace.”
Carter added: “I’m thrilled and proud to become Lloyd’s first female Deputy Chair. I am a huge advocate of the market’s global reach and its ability to respond to the changing risk needs of customers and look forward to continuing to contribute to the leadership of Lloyd’s in this new role
