Ken Randall

Group Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

Ken Randall is a Certified Accountant and has worked in the Insurance industry for more than 40 years. During the early 1980s, Ken was Head of Regulation at Lloyd’s which was then a self-regulated institution. From 1985 until 1991 Ken served as Chief Executive of the Merrett Group, which managed a number of prominent Syndicates at Lloyd’s.

In 1991, Ken left Merrett to set up his own business in partnership with Alan Quilter. Over the next 8 years they developed the Group’s principal subsidiary, the Eastgate Group, into the UK’s largest third party provider of insurance services with 1,300 employees and a turnover of over £80m per annum. Eastgate was sold to Capita plc in November 2000.

Following the sale of Eastgate, Ken and Alan refocused R&Q onto the acquisition of non-life legacy run-off portfolios and again developed an insurance servicing business in London and the US; initially, the Group’s service offering focused on legacy portfolios.

In 2007 Ken presided over the Group’s admission to AIM, part of the London Stock Exchange. Ken remains a principal shareholder, Chairman and CEO of the Group.
