CFC bolsters leadership team with key senior hires

CFC has expanded its global leadership team with the appointment of two strategic senior hires. Katherine Nellums and Peter Samuel have joined CFC as Marketing Director and Human Resources Director, respectively.

“The passion, entrepreneurialism and sheer hard work of the team here at CFC has led to our business achieving exceptional year-on-year growth,” said CFC CEO, David Walsh. “We’re at an incredibly exciting stage in our journey as a company, and the addition of Katherine and Pete to our leadership team further solidifies our commitment to becoming a global leader in specialist insurance as well as an employer of choice in the London market.”

As Marketing Director, Nellums will oversee global marketing strategy and the execution of programs aimed at increasing brand awareness and generating demand for CFC’s broad range of specialist and emerging risk insurance products and services. Prior to CFC, Nellums was vice president of marketing at LoopUp (LSE: LOOP), a London-based software company which she helped float on the London Stock Exchange’s AIM market in 2016. She has 15 years’ experience driving strategic communications and marketing programs for fast-growth and newly-public technology companies in Silicon Valley and London.

As HR Director, Samuel will spearhead CFC’s people strategy including all aspects of talent management, recruitment, learning and development, and organizational planning, and will be responsible for efforts to embed CFC’s culture and brand values throughout the business. Samuel joins CFC with over 16 years’ experience in HR, most recently serving as Global HR Director for HiFX where he led and implemented HR strategy across Europe, North America and Australasia.

Walsh continued: “Katherine and Pete are high calibre professionals with deep expertise in their respective fields, and most importantly, they share our passion for the culture and vision of CFC. We are delighted to welcome them on board.”
