Arch Insurance has announced the appointment of Roberto Tous (pictured above) as director of strategy & distribution for Europe, effective immediately.

Tous brings over 16 years of experience in the European insurance market to the position. He joins from Zurich Insurance, where he held several leadership roles, including head of general liability, financial lines and cyber risk in Benelux, and financial lines EMEA business development manager. Prior to this, Tous was a financial lines underwriter at Chubb Insurance Europe.

Tous joins Arch Insurance (EU) dac (AIEU), which provides specialist property and casualty insurance solutions within the European Union. In his new role, he will work with Arch’s European underwriting teams to develop strategic broker relationships and enhance the company’s distribution strategy.

He will report to Søren Scheuer, CEO of Arch Insurance (EU) dac, and will collaborate closely with Simon Williams, chief strategy & distribution officer, Arch Insurance International.

Scheuer remarked that Roberto’s appointment is a significant step in the development of their European underwriting platform.

“Roberto’s appointment is another important step in the ongoing development of our European underwriting platform, where we see opportunities to expand both geographically and into new lines of business. Working in collaboration with Arch’s teams in Dublin and London as well as our broking partners, Roberto will be a key part of the expansion of our operations across Continental Europe, and we’re delighted to have him on board,” Scheuer said.

Williams also stated that Tous will be a valuable addition to their growing European team.

“His wealth of experience, Europe-wide market knowledge, and track record in building deep broker relationships makes him the perfect fit as we seek to drive further growth across our underwriting portfolio and increase our relevance to our broker partners,” Williams said.

Earlier this month, Arch Insurance International also bolstered its foothold in the UK with the appointment of Ketan Motwani as UK chief operating officer (COO).
