MS Amlin Underwriting Limited (MS AUL) today announces the appointment of Peter McKenna as President of newly formed sister company MS Amlin Distribution Holdings (MS ADH). McKenna will report into Johan Slabbert CEO of MS ADH.  He takes up the role with immediate effect.

An industry veteran, McKenna joins MS ADH from RSG Europe, where he most recently served as CEO for seven years.

Prior to RSG, McKenna worked for twenty three years at AIG in a number of roles, including CEO, Financial Lines EMEA, and Chief Operating Officer, Financial Lines US & Canada. His experience leading cross-border business development and expansion projects marks him as a natural fit for MS ADH as the business looks to explore further acquisitions and investment opportunities for MS AUL in the US market.
