Hyperion unit brings in underwriting director

After 11 years at Hiscox Re, where he was head of business development, Ben Love is moving to Tamesis DUAL

Part of the underwriting arm of the Hyperion Insurance Group, the global specialty excess of loss treaty reinsurance unit has appointed Love as director of underwriting. Based in London, he will report to Tamesis founder and managing director Tony Lovett.    

The key addition brings more than two decades – including one at Greig Fester / Benfield – of treaty reinsurance experience across underwriting, broking, third-party capital management, and strategy development and execution to the role.

“We are very excited that Ben is joining the Tamesis team,” commented Lovett. “He is highly regarded and his relationships, knowledge, and all-round experience will help develop our specialty excess of loss reinsurance business here in London as well as our New York and Miami offices.

“Over the past eight years, we have established the Tamesis brand and have exceptional scope for growth, even in the current market. Ben’s appointment is a testimony to what we have achieved as a multi-class, low-cost, specialty reinsurance managing general underwriter.”

Tamesis, founded in 2011, operates in the London Market and the Americas.

“We have a real opportunity to expand the breadth of our products to our brokers, clients, and coverholders while continuing to provide profitability, excellent client service, and demonstrable attention to risk and catastrophe exposure management,” added the managing director.
