Bloomer will join the board as chair designate on 1 June.

We will benefit from his experience and leadership and we are all very much looking forward to working with him."

Robert Childs said: "The board has made an outstanding choice in Jonathan Bloomer to be the next chair of Hiscox. He joins the group at an exciting time, with a range of opportunities ahead for continued profitable growth."
