International General Insurance Holdings Ltd (IGI) has appointed Brian James (pictured) as class underwriter for cargo.

According to a statement from the insurer, James brings over 30 years of experience in the cargo industry. He joins from Neon Underwriting, where he was class underwriter. Prior to this, James spent over a decade at Wellington Underwriting where he was responsible for establishing Wellington’s Syndicate Services and Wellington Genoa, following the acquisition by Catlin.

The appointment, the company said, further strengthens its team and its growing marine portfolio.

James reports to Mark Trevitt, marine class underwriter, and will be based in IGI’s London office. He will be responsible for developing a niche portfolio of general cargo business, focusing on specific elements of the general cargo market, specifically medium-sized accounts and largely transit only, as well as cargo “war on land” risks.
