QBE Insurance will appoint Matt Mansour as its new group chief information officer later this year.
Mansour comes from British financial services giant Barclays where he is presently chief technology information security officer.
He has been at Barclays since 2015 and previously worked in senior IT roles at General Electric for 12 years.
Mansour will head up the company’s IT operations from London.
QBE's Australian arm recently merged its technology and transformation teams, resulting in the redundancy of Australian CIO Tony Forward.
It is recruiting for a new chief operations officer locally, which encompasses Forward's remit.
