PROFILE: Annabel Venner, marketing director, Hiscox UK

Hiscox UK may be focused on art but its marketing director, Annabel Venner, never loses sight of the science


A sculpture of an over-sized brightly coloured plastic flower to my left, a large canvas filled with red and black paint taking up most of the wall in front of me. Up to the ninth floor and I’m greeted by Damien Hirst’s ‘Sacred Heart’ and for the grand finale, a stuffed squirrel curled up in large cocktail glass. Welcome to the Hiscox offices where the insurer has a curator whose only brief is to inspire debate.
