Carbon boosts underwriting line-up

Giovanni Schiattarella has come onboard managing general underwriter Carbon Underwriting Ltd.

Making the switch from his career as an insurance broker, Schiattarella will serve as an underwriter focussed on expanding Carbon’s general liability and property books of business across Europe. His remit also spans new business development.

“I am delighted to have joined Carbon and to be working with such a talented and forward-thinking team,” said Schiattarella, whose credentials include time spent at Marine Aviation & General SpA and BDB Ltd.

“The markets in Europe represent an opportunity to develop our existing books of business and new business development and we plan to do this in a measured way with a sharp focus on data-driven underwriting discipline.”

The new Carbon underwriter is keen to use his extensive experience of European insurance markets and strong network of contacts to expand the MGU’s presence across the region.

Meanwhile, Carbon executive director and Syndicate 4747 active underwriter Nick Tye commented: “I am always pleased to welcome new talent to Carbon, and Giovanni’s wealth of international broking experience will bring fresh ideas and expertise to our growing business.”

“Europe represents an important part of our strategy and our focus remains on value, not volume, whereby we partner with the strongest and most dynamic market players,” added Tye. “I am delighted that Giovanni has joined us, and I look forward to working with him as we continue to evolve our data-driven underwriting capabilities to deliver sustained profitable growth.”
