Head of UK & Ireland Casualty
I’ve worked in the London market since 1992, including at XL Group, Liberty Mutual Insurance and Ace Europe. That means I’ve seen first-hand the underpricing of casualty products over the last decade – including in the UK and Ireland.
The casualty market is now in transition and we think it might be about to harden a little more. So it felt like a good time to join a company that can offer something different to clients and brokers.
At Convex, we’re starting with a blank piece of paper, which is really exciting. I’ve turned around an underperforming function before, but I’ve never set one up. It was quite a lure. And who wouldn’t want to have the opportunity to work for Stephen Catlin and Paul Brand?
The opportunity to build such a strong team was another draw. Between the five of us, we have XX years of combined casualty experience. Add that to the strength of the Convex brand and you have a very attractive proposition for clients and brokers.
