DUAL Europe grows leadership team

Specialist underwriting management group DUAL has announced that Floris Wijchman has been named commercial director of DUAL Europe.

“We are delighted to welcome Floris to the DUAL Europe leadership team. His extensive experience both in commercial and reinsurance business will play a key role in helping to make DUAL Europe the specialty market of choice for quality brokers,” said DUAL Europe CEO Olaf Jonda.

Jonda added that DUAL has been operating in Europe for nearly 25 years, and while the company is a significant player in the underwriting field, it still sees “real opportunities to further expand [its] European footprint.”

“Floris’s proven track record in driving growth make him an invaluable member of our team,” the chief executive prefaced.

“I am genuinely excited to be joining DUAL. They have a truly entrepreneurial culture that is 100% focused on delivering the best outcomes for their carriers and extensive broker network. This client focus, together with their investment in technology makes DUAL a winning combination and a logical partner of choice,” commented Wijchman. “I’m looking forward to being part of the team that grows DUAL Europe to a $750 million GWP business over the next five years.”

Wijchman has more than 25 years of insurance industry experience, most recently serving as managing director for Allianz’ Global MidCorp business unit. He has also held several roles at Swiss Re, including head of CEO office.
