Underwriting agency hires property portfolio leader
SLE Group, which operates SLE Worldwide Australia, Mobius Underwriting and Pacific Underwriting, has appointed Adam Thackeray as senior property underwriter.

Thackeray will work predominantly with Mobius and will provide national support across the property and industrial special risks and strata product lines of the company.

Mobius general manager, Stuart Warden, welcomed the hiring of Thackeray and believes his prior experience and familiarity with the Lloyd’s market will help the company expand its portfolio.

Thackeray will “work with the Mobius team to build on our strengths in commercial and large corporate property programs and residential strata, and focus on Mobius’s entrance into the commercial strata market,” Warden said.

Having previously worked for Allianz as state underwriting manager for New South Wales and Australia Capital Territory and as property underwriting manager for Miramar Underwriting, Mobius will use Thackeray’s experience to further develop its brand.

Thackeray replaces Warden who was promoted to general manager at the company in October 2014.
