Aventum Group’s international broking arm Consilium has added Toby Gorman (pictured above) and Matt Taylor (pictured below) as partner and associate partner, respectively, to the company’s delegated risk solutions division.

“I’m delighted to welcome Toby and Matt to our growing team,” said Consilium managing partner and co-chief executive James Baird in an emailed release. “We are leading the way with innovation, delivering tangible additional value to MGAs (managing general agents) and coverholders through a range of services which until now haven’t been considered core to DUA (delegated underwriting authority) broking.

“We now work with over 60 global carriers across 30-odd product classes. We already operate significantly in the UK, North America, and Canada, and these latest appointments will strengthen our DUA expertise in those regions, particularly in non-critical cat (catastrophe) areas. Both appointments bring strong connections in Lloyd’s and other markets and strong relationships in the MGA and coverholder space.”

Taylor, who brings 26 years of broking experience, made the switch from Chesterfield Group. His credentials include 14 years spent as a broker at Corrie Bauckham Batts.

Meanwhile, Gorman most recently served as underwriting practice leader for property binders at Arrow Risk Management. A specialist in delegated authority business for over two and a half decades, Gorman previously worked at the likes of AXIS Capital and Novae.

Based in the UK, both hires bring additional specialist North American and Canadian expertise.
