Beazley names Bethany Greenwood as head of cyber & executive risk

In a career spanning more than 20 years, Bethany has worked extensively across management liability lines, including D&O, errors & omissions and cyber programs.
She will succeed Mike Donovan who has decided to retire from Beazley after 15 years with the company. However, Mike will remain with Beazley for longer to ensure a smooth handover with Bethany and the team.
Also within CyEx, Paul Bantick, who currently leads the London market & international cyber & tech team, will take on global responsibility for cyber & tech from July.
Andrew Horton, Beazley CEO, said: “I am delighted Bethany Greenwood has accepted the role of head of cyber & executive risk. Bethany has quickly established herself as a widely respected leader within CyEx with the skills needed for the future of the team.
“Paul Bantick’s deep expertise in the cyber space and track record for building strong underwriting propositions around the world will be of tremendous value as we continue to build our global capability.
“I would also like to thank Mike Donovan for his invaluable contribution to the business. Mike has played an instrumental role in Beazley’s growth in the US and also across the group as a member of the executive committee. Bethany, Paul, Mike and the CyEx leadership team will spend the coming months working together to ensure a smooth transition.”
