EVCA creates commercial role

In line with the EVCA chairman’s priorities on member services, the organisation has developed a new position within the secretariat.

Mark Roberts has been appointed to the newly created role of Chief Commercial Officer. He joins from AON where he was chief executive of the M&A group of EMEA and Asia Pacific. Before AON, Roberts was a director with the Gerling insurance group and was with the British army for 19 years.

Chairman of EVCA, Richard Willson said: “Roberts will already be known to many in the industry and his appointment is an important step towards fulfilling the strategic goals we recently set out to deliver tangible value to members and targeted services tailored to their needs.”
