Oneglobal expands into Middle East with CEO appointment

Oneglobal Broking is expanding into a new market with the appointment of Matthew Warren (pictured above) as CEO of Oneglobal Middle East.

The new operation is located at the Dubai International Financial Centre. Warren, who reports directly to group CEO Mike Reynolds, will oversee Oneglobal’s efforts to build out its operations across the region.

The move follows the opening of Oneglobal’s offices in the Netherlands and Bermuda earlier this year.

“Oneglobal is delighted to be opening an office in the dynamic market of the Middle East,” Reynolds said. “This has been an important objective of ours since our launch in 2020. With this office opening and the appointment of Matthew as CEO, Oneglobal can continue to provide high-quality and comprehensive services to our clients around the globe. I look forward to working with Matthew and the team he will be onboarding shortly.”

Warren will join Oneglobal after completing his obligations with his current employer, where he is chief operating officer. Earlier in Warren’s career, he held senior leadership positions at Talbot Underwriting, Investors Guaranty Group, Lloyd’s of London and Marsh. He has more than 35 years of experience in the insurance industry.

“I am thrilled to be joining Oneglobal at an exciting time in its growth,” Warren said. “I look forward to securing our regulatory license from the DFSA and leading the Middle East operation. There is a lot of exciting but challenging emerging business happening in the market, and we are thrilled to be a part of this. During the coming months, I will be building a team of highly experienced insurance brokers from around the market to work alongside me in delivering excellent and specialised broking services to our clients.”
