There is a new global head at Liberty Specialty Markets.
Lesley Harding (pictured) is taking the role of global head of energy, reporting in to Michael Gosselin, chief underwriting officer, specialty. Based in the London office, she will be responsible for the firm’s entire energy portfolio – including the offshore, onshore, power and renewables sectors. She will also lead the growth and performance of the business.
“I’m delighted to welcome Lesley to the team,” said Gosselin. “She brings a wealth of experience as a key buyer of insurance combined with an extensive knowledge of the changing dynamics of the insurance market. Her expertise in knowing what our customers need from a stable insurance partner will be particularly valuable to drive the growth and high performance of our business.”
Harding makes the switch from BP where she was VP, head of insurance risk management, for seven years. Prior to that she was CEO for Willis Captive Practice.
