MD of Atlas Insurance Management to retire

Atlas Insurance Management (Atlas), a Charlotte-based captive insurance management firm, announced today that group managing director, Nick Leighton, will retire at the end of May 2016.

Leighton, who joined the Atlas team in 2006, manages the firm’s Cayman Islands office where he is responsible for the overall operations, including client relations, business development and regulatory compliance.

Before joining Atlas, Leighton began his career with KPMG and then joined Willis in Guernsey, where he quickly became director in 1993. Leighton moved on to Aon where he was made Director of the Aon-owned protected cell company White Rock, the world’s first rent-a-captive to convert to a cell captive.

“Atlas has thrived under Nick’s leadership, and we look forward to his continued guidance until the day of his departure,” said Martin Eveleigh, chairman of Atlas Insurance Management.

“While we are all sad to see him go, we are incredibly thankful for his many years of dedication and leadership of our Atlas family in the Cayman Islands. Nick has been instrumental in cementing Atlas’s reputation for providing great solutions and great service, and he leaves a strong company poised for extraordinary growth over the next few years.”

Leighton added: “I’m proud to have been a part of the Atlas team for ten years. It has been an honor to work with an incredibly dedicated and talented group of professionals who are truly leaders in the captive insurance industry. I’m not only looking forward to starting the next phase of my life, but I’m also excited to see Atlas continue to grow and thrive.”
