Leading insurance accountant and consultant, Moore Stephens, is to boost its governance, risk and assurance team with the recruitment of two leading practitioners, Gary Oliver and Gavin Davey.
Currently a partner at Mazars, Gary Oliver is well-known in the London market, providing governance, risk and assurance services and acting as head of internal audit to a range of clients including Lloyd’s agencies and syndicates, insurers and reinsurers. He has strong commercial experience, having been Risk Management and Compliance Director at Ark Syndicate Management and Group Head of Internal Audit at Wellington Underwriting.
Gavin Davey, a Mazars director, specialises in providing IT assurance services to both the Lloyd's market and general insurers. He has extensive experience of all aspects of IT internal audit and statutory audit support services and specifically Solvency II data governance and integrity.
Simon Gallagher, head of Moore Stephens’ insurance practice, says the firm is delighted to have recruited two leading practitioners with such strong reputations. “We are seeing substantial demand for our services and expertise, which we foresee continuing as the regulatory regime tightens,” he explains. “We are actively developing our internal audit portfolio, providing not only both co-sourced and outsourced support, but also delivering individual assignments such as governance strategies, compliance gap analyses, board effectiveness reviews and data quality audits. Gary and Gavin’s recruitment will further enhance our expertise in this area”
