Andrew Wheeler (pictured) has been promoted to president of BMS Re, the specialty reinsurance arm of global broking group BMS.
“BMS has been my home for most of my career, which is a testament to the excellent culture we have built,” said Wheeler, who has been with the company for over two decades. “This not only benefits its employees, but also extends to the service we provide to our clients.
“I’m delighted by the opportunity to keep building on BMS Re’s strong foundations and help it grow to new heights.”
In its announcement, BMS said the appointment reinforces its ambition to further build on what was described as the reinsurance division’s “impressive” growth and scale. BMS Re is manned by more than 300 people in offices across the US, London, Bermuda, Latin America, and Asia.
“Andrew has had an incredible career within BMS,” noted BMS Re chief executive Pete Chandler. “From the day I walked through the doors, he has distinguished himself as an absolute class act, a spectacular broker, a magnificent leader, and an even better friend.
“To have someone who knows BMS’ strengths inside and out is exactly what BMS Re needs to continue growing/evolving our business. I am delighted to stand shoulder to shoulder with him.”
