Liberty Mutual Insurance Europe (LMIE) has appointed John McCammon as COO, who will be based in London.

In his role, McCammon will be responsible for LMIE’s Continental Europe division.

McCammon, who replaces Patrick O’Brien, will report to LMIE’s CEO Sean Rocks.

With more than 20 years of experience in the insurance industry, McCammon had recently served as the head of Claims for LMIE.

O’Brien has been moved to take up the role of CEO of Liberty Insurance in Ireland.

Rocks said that John has a great depth of experience across a wide range of insurance lines. I know he will bring the same degree of professionalism and expertise to the COO role that he demonstrated so effectively while transforming their Claims function into one of the best in the London market.
