Risk Benefit Solutions (RBS), an independent insurance and risk specialist, has announced the appointment of Gillian Wolman as its new Head of Litigations Risk.

Wolman, who joins the RBS team with a strong background in litigation management, was previously a Senior Account Manager with Aon South Africa, where she held the overall responsibility of the Director and Officers (D&O) book of business within the company. Prior to this she held various management roles at Glenrand MIB Financial Markets Division and at Alexander Forbes, where she was a technical broker for their Specialist Services Division.

Her key responsibilities at RBS will include utilising her specialised experience in litigation to service, retain and grow both existing and prospective clients, as well as to identify key risk exposure for the company’s clients.

CEO of RBS, Michael Petersen, says that Wolman’s expertise will significantly enhance the company’s litigation risk expertise, further positioning RBS as a market leader. “Gillian is a client centric individual with a long standing and proven track history in her area of specialisation within the South African insurance industry. Assessing a client’s exposure to the various risks of litigation, where there has been an increasing level of complexity and exposure, and where there is an underserviced market, creates an opportunity for us to develop and update existing products to our clients to suit their changing needs. We look forward to Gillian playing a key role in this aspect.”
