Leading commercial insurer NIG has appointed Duncan Calder as its new head of risk control.
Calder joins NIG from Zurich, where he served as risk engineering leader within the insurer’s global real estate insurance practice.
In his new role, Calder said he will help develop the risk control team further to give both NIG and its partner brokers a “competitive advantage.”
“I believe there are some good opportunities to expand the overall Risk Control proposition into additional areas of risk and to make greater use of the data and risk intelligence gathered from site visits to deliver greater insight to brokers,” he said.
Calder started in his new role a couple of weeks ago and has been working with NIG’s risk control team, which he said has “impressive” depth and range of experience.
NIG’s survey support team that completes risk improvements and speaks regularly with brokers is also a “strong differentiator,” Duncan added.
“Brokers appear to value the expertise within the team and there are many strong relationships,” he said.
