MS Amlin Corporate Services Limited (MS ACS) has tapped The Hartford’s Matthew Pasterfield (pictured) as chief executive officer of its MS Amlin Business Services (MS ABS) unit.
He will commence his new role in 2022, replacing Rob Houghton who will be leaving at the end of the year to pursue opportunities outside the company.
Pasterfield boasts more than two decades of industry experience, heading information technology and operations at several insurance giants. He was most recently the international chief operating officer at property and casualty insurer The Hartford.
“His experience is well-suited to assist MS ABS to further enhance its strategy and provide valuable services to the legal entities at MS Amlin,” the company said in a statement.
Current MC ACS board of directors chairman Robin Adam will assist with the transition, serving as interim CEO until Pasterfield’s arrival.
Adam also thanked Houghton for taking up the unit’s leadership role for more than a year.
“On behalf of everyone across MS Amlin’s group of companies, we thank Rob for his service and dedication to the company,” he said. “His leadership and vision have established a robust strategy to carry MS ACS forward. We wish Rob every success in his future endeavors.”
