Global specialty (re)insurer Canopius, the Sydney office of which was set up nearly a year ago as part of the company’s expansion across the Asia-Pacific region, has added casualty underwriter Craig Elliott (pictured) to the team.
Reporting to Australia & Pacific head Claudio Saita, Elliott brings more than a decade of industry experience to the regional role. His credentials include time spent at AIG, Allianz Insurance Australia, and most recently AXA XL.
“Craig has come onboard to lead Canopius Australia & Pacific’s casualty insurance practice,” said Saita. “His experience and innovative approach to writing public and products liability insurance will be hugely beneficial as we continue to expand in Australia and the Pacific region.
“Craig has a proven track record of creating lasting relationships with coverholders and brokers through binder and open market business, which will help us in our ambition to deepen our ties in the region as Australia and New Zealand become ever-more important markets for Lloyd’s underwriters.”
