Former Lloyd’s deputy chairman Dick Hazell dies at 91

Richard “Dick” Hazell, former deputy chairman of Lloyd’s and well-known market figure, has died aged 91.

Hazell enjoyed a 55-year career working in the Lloyd’s market. He left school at 14, and after two years working for Wandsworth & District Gas Company, he joined Lloyd’s broker JH Minet in 1946.

He then moved into underwriting, working at Gen Re and NRG. When NRG acquired FR White Syndicate 190 in 1965, Hazell was asked to lead the business.

Hazell fronted Syndicate 190 and was a prominent P&C market leader for 30 years, during which time he also served as a Lloyd’s Council member for a number of years and was deputy chairman under chairman Murray Lawrence.

Syndicate 190 was acquired by Liberty Mutual in 1995, and Hazell went on to lead the UK arm of the carrier as both chairman and CEO until his retirement in 2001.

He leaves behind his wife, Anne – to whom he was married for nearly 70 years – children Amanda and Simon, and four grandchildren.
