QBE chief executive John Neal will step down at the end of the year to be replaced by Pat Regan.

Mr Regan, a former chief financial officer who currently heads QBE's Australian and New Zealand operations, will take over on January 1 following a transition period alongside Mr Neal.

Mr Neal, who led QBE for five years, this year lost more than $550,000 in pay for a delay in telling his board about a relationship with his personal assistant but chairman Marty Becker said succession planning had been ongoing for the past two years.
