International specialty re/insurance broker McGill and Partners has announced the addition of Josef Heiler to its facultative reinsurance team as a partner, based in Hannover, Germany.

With a background in industrial engineering, Heiler transitions to McGill and Partners after a 15-year tenure at Marsh. There, he held significant roles, including client director and head of global risk management for Marsh GmbH, serving large global clients across various lines.

According to LinkedIn, his career also includes experience as a property underwriter at AIG, where he worked in both Frankfurt and New York.

In his new position at McGill and Partners, Heiler will collaborate closely with the global facultative reinsurance team, as well as with the firm’s partners and clients within the EMEA region. His focus will be on third-party reinsurance, in-house brokers, and captives.

“With a track record of bringing tangible value to clients, Josef will undoubtedly enhance our specialist reinsurance proposition. We’re delighted to have him working with us as we continue to build out our platform,” McGill and Partners head of facultative reinsurance Paul Summers said.
