Lloyd’s has announced the appointment of Vicky Carter as deputy chair of Lloyd’s Council, effective Sept. 1. Carter will be the first woman in the company’s 335-year history to hold the post.
Carter has been an elected member of Lloyd’s Council since 2019 and has worked for the Lloyd’s market for 40 years. She began her career in medicine before moving to reinsurance broking in 1980.
