Compre, the independent specialist legacy acquirer, today announces the appointment of Eleni Iacovides as chief development officer to lead its global business development strategy. She will join the group on June 1, 2020.
Iacovides was previously group chief client officer at DARAG Group and prior to that, a partner in the London office of law firm Goldberg Segalla. She brings 25 years of legacy market experience having started as a contentious reinsurance lawyer in the city. Her career to date has been divided equally between in-house and private practice positions representing legacy acquirers in relation to transactional and contentious matters. She will join Compre’s executive management team and be directly responsible for the business generation team, including the origination and execution of transactions.
Will Bridger, CEO of Compre said: “We are delighted to have Eleni joining us at this exciting time for the Group. She brings a wealth of experience in the legacy market and an ethos of client relationships that matches Compre’s. We believe that long-term relationships with clients are fundamental to the success of our business and this is embedded in our culture. I am looking forward to working closely with Eleni particularly as we seek to broaden our business across new markets in Lloyd’s and North America.”
