Insurer announces key appointment
HDI-Gerling has announced that it has appointed Graham Silton as property underwriting manager.

Silton joins HDI-Gerling from Allianz Global Corporate & Speciality Pacific where he was head of property following a move from the United Kingdom six years ago.

In the UK, Silton has over 25 years of experience writing some of the biggest risks in the London market.

Stefan Feldmann, managing director of HDI-Gerling Australia, said the appointment was key to the company growth and that Silton will provide the experience needed to develop the team in Australia.

"Graham is one of the leading Property Underwriting Managers in Australasia with a proven track record in large corporate and multinational business.

“His international experience and strong leadership capabilities will take our team to the next level and beyond.”

The Silton move follows on from the appointment of a new head of marine for the region and a major rebranding of the company.
