Sian Johnson

Sian Johnson is rejoining the Partners Life team as Chief Underwriter, after a brief stint at Fidelity Life.

She joined Fidelity Life in January this year after Stephen Potter moved to AIA, but she is now back with her old firm. She will join Partner's executive team to lead the strategic direction of underwriting at Partners Life and will use her skills to contribute to continuous improvement across the business.

"We are very fortunate to already have an extremely strong leadership team within underwriting, and Sian will be supported in her role by Clayton Gardner (Technical Chief Underwriter), Levonne Bell (GM Underwriting Operations), Daniel Freemen (GM Underwriting Service), and the rest of our excellent Underwriting Management team," the company says in a statement.

"We are extremely proud of the team we have here at Partners Life, and we are very excited about Sian rejoining us."

Fidelity Life says the search for a new Head of Underwriting and New Business is underway. In the meantime Monique Ravening, its Underwriting Professional Development Manager, is acting in the role, with support from Neale Watling.
