To say that BGC Insurance Group (BGCI) has been busy building its new global aviation and space (re)insurance brokerage is perhaps an understatement, with the BGC Partners division snapping up experts left and right.
The latest to come onboard is Bruce Fine, whose appointment as US aviation and aerospace managing partner and aviation industry financial solutions division president is effective immediately. He will be based in Atlanta and Chicago.
An industry veteran who started out as an aviation underwriter for CIGNA in 1984, Fine most recently served as executive vice president and global aerospace manufacturers and infrastructure industry leader at JLT Specialty. His credentials also include time spent at Alexander & Alexander, Willis Global Aviation, and Marsh.
Commenting on the roster addition, president Marcel Chad said: “We are building a bespoke alternative to the current aviation industry offering. Bruce is a recognised expert in our field with a proven ability to define and deliver innovative client solutions and advocacy.
“His extensive experience in leading and developing aviation and aerospace business will underpin our ability to attract clients and talent as we build our growing business. It gives me great pleasure to welcome Bruce to the team.”
