Henry Allan Engelhardt (born January 17, 1958) is an American businessman, and the founder and former chief executive of Admiral Group, a Welsh motor insurance company. He was credited as driving the company in to a position where it became one of Britain's most valuable companies and stepped down as chief executive in 2016 to make way for a younger management team to take the group forward.
Henry Engelhardt was born on January 17, 1958 in Chicago. He was educated at the University of Michigan, and has a joint degree in journalism and radio, television and film. He followed his French girlfriend (now wife) to Europe where he studied for an MBA at Insead.
Engelhardt became part of the founding team at Churchill Insurance, where he developed his way of doing business.
In 1993, he launched Admiral Group. In 1999, he led a management buy out of the business which has since become a constituent of the FTSE 100 Index.
In September 2012, the Engelhardt family owned more than 14% of Admiral Group.
Engelhardt is married with four children, and lives in Cardiff, Wales.
