“Paul has been instrumental in growing the oil and gas portfolio into a market-leading franchise,” said Mike Gosselin, Liberty Specialty Markets’ chief underwriting officer for specialty. “With his extensive knowledge of the energy sector, he is ideally placed to take on this broader position. I’m confident that he will add tremendous value to both our broker partners and policyholders in the global energy marketplace.”
