Senior departure at Utmost Worldwide

Former longstanding Generali figure leaves three months after firm was acquired


Chief commercial officer Nick Griffin is to leave Utmost Worldwide to “explore new opportunities”, a company spokesperson confirmed to International Adviser.

“The sales and marketing roles for the organisation will now fall under the responsibility of Stephen Atkinson, Utmost’s global head of sales and marketing,” the spokesperson added.

No further details of Griffin’s departure were provided.


It was announced in July 2018 that Generali Worldwide was to be acquired by Utmost Group.

The deal closed in March, at which time Griffin and chief executive Giorgio Daboni sat down with IA to discuss the acquisition and the firm’s plans for the UAE and Hong Kong.
