Specialist insurer Beazley has announced the appointment of John Moy as US marine underwriter within its new US marine platform. Moy will report to Steve Vivian, head of US marine, according to the company.

In his new role, Moy will be responsible for underwriting and building the company’s US hull, protection and indemnity, and liability business for the marine and marine construction sectors. Moy previously served as chief underwriting officer for the Water Quality Syndicate in New York.

Moy’s experience includes work in the US Merchant Marine, private shipping organizations and the insurance sector. He currently serves on the American Institute of Marine Underwriters’ liability and energy committees.

“John’s depth of experience and expertise makes him uniquely qualified to build out our hull and liability portfolio in the US,” Vivian said. “He has an extensive network across the marine broking, insurance and climate communities in the US, and is highly regarded for his knowledge of the market.”

Beazley announced the establishment of its US marine platform in November. It’s been a prominent insurer of marine risks in the Lloyd’s market in London since 1999.
