Brace names underwriting head

Tom Sambrook has been appointed as head of underwriting at Brace Underwriting Limited.

The London-based hire joins from Hiscox where Sambrook most recently served as interim line underwriter within the alternative risk book. He reports to Brace co-founder and chief executive Adam Holberry.

“Tom is an excellent fit for Brace and his experience within the alternative risk space will be a significant boost to our broker, coverholder, and capacity partnerships as we explore opportunities to strategically expand the business,” commented the CEO.

“This appointment further represents Brace’s continued investment in market-leading talent, representing our commitment to build an exclusive number of diverse MGA (managing general agent) relationships; each one a niche sector specialist.”

Holberry added that the appointment will allow the business to further execute on the significant opportunity that the market presents.

“His diverse experience makes him the perfect addition to the Brace leadership team,” said Holberry, “and I look forward to working with him while we continue to provide the innovative solutions that our partners within the global multi-line MGA space require.”
