Executive Assistant to Managing Director, UK Commercial | RSA Group

I’m Hannah, Executive Assistant to the MD of our Commercial business at RSA Group. My role is really varied; one day I’m writing a speech; the next I’m facilitating a Board meeting! I joined the RSA graduate programme in 2011, fresh-faced from Leeds University with a History of Art MA in hand. Since then, I’ve worked in underwriting, business development, leadership and marketing positions in the UK and mainland Europe.

One of my proudest moments was being elected first female Chair of the Young Members’ Committee at the Insurance Institute of London. We organise development and networking events for young professionals across the market. Other highlights include shaping a Mentoring scheme for ACII exam candidates and participating at Dive In Festival; promoting diversity in insurance.

Outside work, I’m an avid charity runner and perform in musicals with a London-based Am-Dram society.

What motivates me? Challenging the norm; making a difference.
