Global insurance group Howden has announced two key appointments in its aviation division.

Steven Crook has been appointed as divisional director and head of claims, aviation, bringing over 30 years of industry experience, including a tenure at Marsh with a focus on aviation claims.

Wayne Hawkins will join as divisional director and head of airlines, aviation, once his current contractual obligations with McGill and Partners conclude at the end of 2023. Hawkins began his career in 2005 at Willis Towers Watson and subsequently held positions managing complex risks for various companies.

Crook and Hawkins will be based in London and will report to Jason Humphreys, Howden's global head of aviation.

“As we accelerate our growth into the airline and aerospace sectors it is vital that we invest in expertise to add further value and services for our clients,” Humphreys said. “In welcoming Steven and Wayne to the team, we underline our commitment to strengthening our aviation division, and their significant market experience will add to the team’s existing skills and capabilities. I am thrilled to welcome them at this exciting time for both the sector and for Howden.”

Howden recently announced that 1,000 of its employees had invested in the company through an internal share offer scheme. In May, the company announced that it would unify its business structure under one global executive.
