London Market specialist Citynet Insurance Brokers has a new UK head of property and casualty.
Making a swoop for Wrightsure Insurance Group wholesale director Lawrence Shortland (pictured), Citynet has turned to the industry veteran to focus on further expansion of its UK account by nurturing relationships with new and existing intermediaries as well as helping to develop facilities with new and existing markets.
“I am thrilled to be joining Citynet, one of the fastest growing and market-leading wholesale brokers, and to become part of the exceptional team of people they have there,” commented the major hire.
Shortland’s more than three decades of insurance experience includes nearly 19 years with RL Davison Lloyd’s Brokers where he served as chief executive and managing director. He also spent time at the likes of Miles Smith.
“We are delighted to have an individual of this calibre onboard,” said Citynet managing director Andrew Walsh, who started his career at R L Davison & Co. “Lawrence’s experience and track record speaks for itself, and I am tremendously excited to be working alongside him once again.”
