Atradius is restructuring its Irish operations with the appointment of Stuart Ramsden as the new regional commercial manager for the country. As over 65 per cent of its business is in the Republic of Ireland, it is realigning its operations to bring the commercial management side of the business from Belfast to join the risk underwriting team under one roof in Dublin. For the first time, each office will also now have a separate account management team and new business development manager focused on their respective region. These dedicated teams will offer customers a more tailored approach and improved levels of service. Heading up this restructure is Stuart Ramsden, who has extensive experience in the credit insurance industry, and has been with Atradius for 15 years. He is currently relocating to Dublin from Atradius’s UK headquarters in Cardiff, where his previous role was commercial manager for corporate accounts. Ramsden will be working closely with John Morris who is head of the risk underwriting team in Dublin.
