Miller establishes dedicated Canadian delegated authority unit

Specialist (re)insurance broker Miller Insurance has announced that it has expanded its delegated authority team with the creation of a new Canadian unit.

The new Canadian unit is comprised of five new hires: Steve Maslen, Matt Dear, Mike Biddle, Saif Sulaiman and Nick Wilson. A release noted that the five each join from Tysers, and they bring with them considerable experience in Canada’s P&C market. The team will be led by Maslen and Dear, who both have longstanding experience operating in the London Market, with a focus on Canadian business.

Miller has stated that the new team will be part of its wider delegated authority business and will report to Chris Hardcastle, head of delegated authority.

“We are delighted to welcome the team to Miller,” said Hardcastle. These appointments bring significant expertise, experience and relationships that will further enhance our exceptional delegated authority capabilities and are a great complement to our existing operations.”

“Miller has a great reputation in the market and this is an exciting opportunity to continue building out their fast growing proposition in the delegated authority space,” added Maslen. “We are hugely excited to be joining and look forward to the many opportunities that lie ahead.”

“The excellent culture and support network at Miller was a huge draw for the team. Their commitment to meeting the ever-changing needs of clients creates a great environment to look at business in a new and innovative way. I very much look forward to working with Chris and the rest of the delegated authority team to continue enhancing Miller’s capabilities in this space,” commented Dear.

Miller also noted that this new unit is a reflection of its “continued investment in broadening its product offering and jurisdictional capabilities” in the delegated authority space, and that it follows the appointment of Hardcastle earlier this year in April.
