Our PI business has benefited hugely from Steve’s oustanding leadership over many years, and I am looking forward to him achieving the same success in this broader role,” commented Wilson.

“This move, in addition to the recent appointment of Alex Jackson as product head of Management Liability, completes the restructuring of the Financial Lines team for Global Markets and makes us perfectly placed to best serve our Financial Lines clients and broker partners,” he added.
