Managing director, financial lines
As the leader of a newly created division at Pen Underwriting, Jennifer Martin was promoted to managing director of financial lines earlier this year.
“Throughout my career I have been fortunate enough to manage and lead a variety of different teams and I always enjoy being involved in their training, as well as their personal and professional development,” Martin says.
The financial lines capability is expected to provide one-stop access to facilities for professional indemnity, D&O, personal accident and travel and cyber risks.
Prior to joining Pen Underwriting, Martin served as director of underwriting, Europe, for Dual International, after a post as divisional director at Brit Insurance.
For the next generation of female insurance leaders, Martin offers this advice: “My first piece of advice is to know your products thoroughly and build a reputation based on your technical knowledge – you want to be the go-to on a particular topic, class, product, etc. My second is to always be professional, both in the way you dress and in the way you interact with others. Embrace feminine individuality and strengths, lead by example, focus on finding solutions and, ultimately, enjoy what you are doing.”
