King Price Insurance appoints Paul Stedall as new CFO

Paul Stedall will be taking over from Rhett Finch, now deputy CEO, as King Price’s new CFO.

King Price Insurance has appointed Paul Stedall as its new CFO. Paul will be taking the reins from Rhett Finch, who was appointed as the insurer’s deputy CEO in August 2020.

About the appointment, Paul says that he looks forward to being able to continue to build on the solid finance Rhett and the team have built over the last 8 years. "It's a phenomenal organisation that has agility and innovation at its core, and I'm excited to introduce some innovation in the finance space." 

He says that King Price is in its next phase of growth and expansion, "King Price 2.0 if you like". The non-life business has achieved scale and is making a real dent in the competitor landscape, and the life business will launch soo and be a disrupter in its own right. "Both these businesses need strong financial processes, people and systems, so my immediate focus will be to enable a solid financial reporting structure across the group."
