Atrium Underwriting FD
Simon Curtis will step down from his position in order to take a career break,
the company has announced.  

The Lloyd’s insurer
delivered the news in releasing its final results today which disclosed a 347%
surge in pre-tax profits. The company racked up £44.7m compared to £10m in the
previous financial year.

Chairman James Joll said: ‘It is with some sadness that we announce today
that our Group Finance Director, Simon Curtis, intends to step down from his
position, and the Board, in order to take a career break. Simon has been a very
capable finance director and a valuable member of the Board. During his seven
years at Atrium, he has led us through some challenging times, including the
shift to annual accounting as well as the more recent transition to IFRS
reporting standards. We will report progress in the search for his successor at
our AGM at the end of June.’

Chief exec Steve Cook added: ‘I would like to thank Simon Curtis for his huge
contribution to Atrium over the years, particularly during our transition to
annual accounting and, more recently, to IFRS and wish him every success for the
future.’
