Hiscox announces passing of director

Mike Southgate – who became part of the Hiscox family in February 2020 in his capacity as divisional director for marine, energy, and specialty – has passed away.

“In his time with us,” noted the specialist insurer on LinkedIn in honour of Southgate, “Mike has been responsible for building and leading one of our most high-performing teams.

“He has helped to deliver two years of strong rate and profit growth and was a well-respected member of the Hiscox London Market leadership team.”

Without providing further details, Hiscox said they are deeply saddened by Southgate’s passing.

“Mike has made a significant contribution to the insurance industry and will be deeply missed by his colleagues and friends,” the company went on to state. “Our thoughts are with his family at this difficult time, and we offer them our heartfelt condolences.”

Southgate’s over four-decade career spanned years spent at Canopius, Montpelier Syndicate, Swiss Re, GE Insurance, Aon, and Sturge Syndicate.
