Vicky is chairman of Guy Carpenter's global capital solutions operation - her reinsurance expertise is an excellent contribution to the Council.

Lord Sedwill will bring an abundance of experience and contacts to Lloyd's.

As one of the most respected figures in modern British diplomacy, and a former Head of the UK Civil Service, Mark brings to Lloyd’s a unique and independent perspective as we deliver against our strategic priorities. His leadership on initiatives in the areas of governance, risk management, ESG and business transformation make him an excellent choice for this role.”
