I have been active in the Contingency market since 1991, first as a broker before moving to Underwriting the class in 2000; the last 16 years being at Beazley.
Convex is an exciting place to be. It’s the right time to enter this business sector – the management at Convex clearly have a long and successful history, understand Contingency business and the importance of building a long-term sustainable and profitable account.
I’ve been an underwriter in the London market for over 15 years and focused on contingency for the past ten; most recently in the team at AXA XL for five years.
Joining the exciting team at Convex was a great opportunity. It’s got the best underwriters in the market: they’re really forward-thinking and creative. The chance to build a successful crisis management department in this environment, and with Mark and James, was an opportunity I couldn’t turn down.
