AssuredPartners London (APL) has appointed industry veteran Guy Sansom as the new divisional director of its transportation team.
The company said Sansom’s recruitment is part of a drive to build a thriving transportation platform in London.
“We are delighted to have recruited Guy Sansom to join AssuredPartners London and to help us establish a transportation speciality,” said APL CEO Nick Ash.
Ash said Sansom’s team will be bringing new opportunities and premium to the London market.
AssuredPartners regional president Matt Gardner said Sansom’s addition to the UK team gives the company a “tremendous London market presence” that will provide producers and clients access to proprietary products and services tailored to the transportation industry.
Sansom has more than 30 years of experience in the North American market and on the international scene with clients in Bermuda and Europe.
He joins from Lonsdale Insurance Brokers, where he was managing director of the North American division.
Sansom previously held senior positions in several companies, including Jardine Lloyd Thompson, Price Forbes & Partners and Heath Lambert.
“I am both keen and optimistic about the expansion possibilities and look forward to developing the transportation book further alongside the rapidly growing AssuredPartners companies.”
APL is the London arm of AssuredPartners, one of the largest independent brokerage firms in the US. It specialises in the wholesale and retail sectors, offering modified services to clients across the world.
