Acquis Insurance Management is excited to announce the appointment of Mark Wood as its Chairman. Following investment from Private Equity company Dunedin, Acquis is in the process of bolstering its Executive and Management Teams. Mark’s appointment follows that of Maurice Wijmans as Business Development Director of Acquis’s Dutch subsidiary (Acquis Insurance Management B.V.) in May this year.

Having held several senior positions in global institutions, Mark is one of the leading figures in the financial industry. With roles including Chief Executive of Prudential UK & Europe and CEO of AXA UK, Mark brings a vast amount of specialist knowledge and experience to Acquis. Mark’s proven track record of running and growing large companies, makes him the ideal person to lead the Board and support the Management team as the company looks to reach its ambitious plans for growth.

Mark commented, « Under Nick’s (Nick Leader, CEO) leadership Acquis is established as the pre-eminent provider of ‘peace of mind’ insurance cover to lessors across a wide range of assets. Strong relationships have been formed with some of the world’s major lessors and with the backing of Dunedin the company is set for stand out growth. I am delighted to be chairing the company for the next stage in Acquis’s development. »

The recent launch of Acquis Insurance Management B.V. in the Netherlands helps strengthen Acquis’ proposition in the 13 countries it already supports and provides a strategic base for further international expansion. Mark’s appointment is further evidence of Acquis’ commitment to excellence and its focus on hiring the best people to enhance its leadership team and achieve its full potential.
