Aviva appoints new director of Corporate Risk Solutions

Article date: 18 June 2010

Aviva has today announced that Dipak Warren will be joining them as Corporate Risk Solutions Director.

Dipak joins Aviva from Mitsui Sumitomo Insurance (London Management) Ltd where she joined in 2000 as a founding member of the Syndicate with responsibility for developing the property and package business across the UK and European large corporate clients. Dipak will report to Axel Schmidt, Chief Underwriting Officer.

In her last role as active underwriter and director of Mitsui Syndicate, Dipak was responsible for the Syndicate business plan and performance across property, casualty, motor, PI, marine, construction, commercial mid-market and aviation. 

David McMillan, UK General Insurance CEO, Aviva, said: “We are delighted to be welcoming Dipak to head up our Corporate Risk Solutions division.

“Corporate Risk Solutions has had a great reception from brokers since its launch in January, and has gone from strength to strength, culminating in Dipak’s appointment. Although we have only recently set our sights on large corporate risks, we believe Dipak's appointment further substantiates our intention of becoming a top three player in the corporate risks market within the next three to five years.

"We know that Dipak, with her wealth of experience in this sector, will be a strong asset to the team, both by helping develop our expertise further and leading the team to even greater success in the future.”

Dipak will take up her new role in September. She will be based in London at the Corporate Risk Solutions Centre in St Helen’s, Aviva’s head office.
