Amex Euro legal chief jumps ship to RSA

American Express (Amex) managing counsel for Europe, Middle East and Africa has quit after just over 18 months in the role.

Mark Chambers, who joined Amex in January 2003, is leaving the group to join Royal & Sun Alliance as general counsel and group company secretary with effect from October.

He is replacing Jan Miller as group company secretary after 34 years with the group.

Prior to joining Amex, Chamber spent seven years with General Electric (GE), where he was general counsel for GE Insurance Holdings between 2000 and 2003, having served as legal director and company secretary for GE Capital Global Consumer Finance between 1998 and 2000.
