Lloyd’s insurer Neon recently announced the promotion of underwriter Angus Wilson to the role of head of marine.
Wilson will also keep his current position as class underwriter for marine hull and war. He will continue to report to Darren Lednor, the firm’s chief underwriting officer.
In his new role, Angus will lead a team of six experienced professionals and grow Neon’s marine portfolio that includes products such as cargo, shipbuilding and offshore construction, marine liability and marine hull and war.
Commenting on the appointment, Neon CEO Martin Reith said Wilson has the “right credentials and commitment” to support the company’s goal of becoming a leading player in the marine market.
“We have identified marine as a key area of long-term growth for Neon as we move the business forward, and see significant scope to expand our offering in this space,” Reith said. “I am therefore delighted to appoint Angus to this new role.”
“With his strong relationships and exceptional levels of technical and industry expertise, Angus’s appointment is testament to the level of talent within the business and Neon’s aim to grow,” Reith added.
Wilson has over 25 years of experience in the industry and marine insurance. He joined Neon in 2009 and previously held roles at Ascot, XL and Chaucer.
