Button replaces Waters at HDI Global Specialty

HDI Global Specialty SE (HDI) has appointed John Button as head of global distribution and business development for its global operations, effective immediately.

He will report to Richard Taylor, member of the executive board and chief marketing officer.

Button replaces Alan Waters, who held the position for the last three and a half years and left the company by mutual agreement last month. Button, who previously reported to Waters, has worked for HDI Global SE for 8 years and has held the position of strategic relationship manager at HDI Global Specialty for the past 3 years. The role will work alongside its parent company HDI Global SE to align its distribution strategy as one face to HDI’s broker partners.

“I am delighted with the appointment, John has gained vast experience in strategic management of distribution working with Alan and I wish him every success in his new role,” said Taylor. “This is an important role for HDI as our specialty lines business very much relies on the support and partnership of our brokers.”
