New support for professional & financial lines
by THB | 23 Jul 2019
London-based wholesale insurance and reinsurance broker THB is delighted to announce the expansion of its Professional & Financial Risks division with new hires plus a new focus on a set of high profile classes.
THB Professional & Financial Risks, which handles risks throughout North America, Northern and Western Europe and Australia, has recruited three new brokers to support its growing portfolio, as well as establishing a new Cyber, Technology & Media Liability broking team to focus on these high profile classes which regularly hit the headlines, putting them at the forefront of risk management for directors of a broad range of businesses.
The new division will be headed by Madeline Jackman. Maddy joined THB in February 2011 as a temporary junior claims broker. She quickly progressed to assist the Employment Practices Liability and E&O teams as a broker assistant, before formally taking on the role of U.S. Professional Liability broker in 2014. Maddy has focused on Cyber, Technology and Media Liability for the last two years and was promoted to associate director in April 2019.
In addition, broker Kobi Wisbord joined the Cyber team in July 2019 from Ramot Insurance Agencies Ltd in Israel. Kobi studied Cyber Security as part of his master’s degree at IDC College and has previously worked as an underwriter at Clal Insurance Co Ltd.
Other new hires in the division include Daisy Morris and Lucas Swan, who have both joined the U.S. Professional Liability broking team.
Daisy joined from QBE, having worked in the compliance function of their European arm. Prior to this, Daisy worked at Beazley in the Professions team within their Specialty Lines department. Daisy assists the team with their E&O manufacturers, Miscellaneous Medical and MPL book. Lucas joined the U.S. Professional Liability team in July 2019 and has been assisting across both the Cyber and E&O teams.
Managing Director, Roddy Graham, commented: “The division has grown substantially over the last 14 years. With further investment in new talent on the horizon, my team remains focused on providing expert and market-leading offerings related to financial services and professional lines.”
