On behalf of the Board of Directors of Colonial Group International, Chairman Dr. Grant Gibbons announced that Naz Farrow, COO – Health, has been appointed Designate Chief Executive Officer of Colonial Group International [CGI] effective June 1st 2017.

Gibbons says, “Naz Farrow joined Colonial in 1997 and has managed the Group Health portfolio since 1998. Under her leadership, the health business has grown significantly and attained new levels of client service and efficiency. She has been a driving force in the success of our health business, and during her time as COO, Colonial Medical has consistently outperformed strategic targets.

“We are confident that Naz possesses the expertise and commitment to meet the challenges of the CEO role and believe her experience with our strategy and culture will allow her to manage the talent needed to build on our success.

“During the coming months, Alan and Naz will work closely to maintain strategic priorities and ensure a smooth transition. The outlook for CGI continues to be bright, and I look forward to supporting Naz as she takes on her new responsibilities.

“For more than 40 years, Alan Peacock has provided strong and consistent leadership to the Colonial Group. From the time he joined the company in 1975, we have seen Colonial grow from a small domestic motor insurer to one of the region’s largest insurance and financial services providers.

“Alan has set the highest standards and values for the Colonial Group. He has contributed to the overall success of Colonial, enhanced policyholder value and developed industry strength in the region.

“Under Alan’s leadership CGI’s capital base has grown significantly to provide the financial strength required by our clients and policyholders. Alan has embedded a strong strategic framework within the organization and introduced a culture of risk and compliance management to meet today’s enhanced regulatory requirements. His management has placed Colonial Group in a strong position to face future challenges.

“I am pleased to congratulate Naz Farrow as she assumes her new role.”
