Acrisure Re, the reinsurance division of global insurance broker Acrisure, announced on Thursday the passing of Ian Wicks (pictured), its executive vice president. Wicks was 66.

“It is with great sadness that we share the unexpected passing of our dear friend and colleague, Ian Wicks,” the company wrote in its LinkedIn post. It lauded Wicks’ track record in the insurance sector, having served in the industry as a broker for almost 50 years. He was praised for his business acumen and people skills.

“He was a man of the utmost integrity and we are honored to have witnessed his exemplary character in action. He will be remembered for his warm personality and his ability to lighten up any room,” the statement said in conclusion. “Our deepest sympathies go out to Ian’s family and friends, and may his memory be a source of comfort to all who were fortunate enough to have crossed paths with him. Rest in peace, Ian. You will be dearly missed.”

Wicks joined Acrisure Re in 2021, with his appointment to the position of executive vice president, which was described as involving a broad strategic role. He thereafter joined the London-based casualty team. His hiring was described as part of Acrisure Re’s plans to bolster the casualty team as well as expand the company’s footprint in third-party lines.

Prior to joining the reinsurance company, he served at Ed Broking as chair of its non-marine reinsurance unit, specializing in casualty reinsurance. He also previously took on leadership roles at Harman, Wicks & Swayne, Willis Re, and JLT Re.

He started his career in the insurance industry as a reinsurance broker at Fenchurch Reinsurance Brokers Ltd, remaining in the company for almost 10 years.
