CMO – Hiscox USA

Chief Marketing Officer for Hiscox USA. Founded in 1901, Hiscox is a global specialist insurer, listed on the London Stock Exchange (LSE: HSX). They target niche risks that other insurers often find too complex to underwrite, such as emerging professions, media and entertainment, technology/data privacy, management liability, kidnap and ransom, and fine art. The Hiscox Group employs more than 2,000 people in 14 countries, and has customers worldwide. Hiscox USA was established in 2006 and is now the fastest-growing division within the global Hiscox Group. The Company employs more than 500 people in the U.S. with office locations in White Plains, New York City, Chicago, Atlanta, Dallas, Phoenix, Los Angeles and San Francisco.

In addition to directing the company’s U.S. Marketing activity across all channels, this individual will play a crucial role in helping build and drive the overall Hiscox USA business. The role will report to the company’s Global Chief Marketing Officer (Mr. Russ Findlay, who we recruited to Hiscox in 2013), with the U.S. CEO as a key stakeholder. Additionally, this CMO will sit on the Global Marketing Leadership Team and the U.S. Leadership Team.

The new CMO for the U.S. can live in the NY/NJ/CT area, and work out of Hiscox offices in either Manhattan or White Plains, or he/she can live in the Atlanta area, and work from the Hiscox office just south of Dunwoody.
