Liberty Specialty Markets (LSM) has hired its first-ever London energy head.

Former underwriting manager for onshore energy James Boyle (pictured) is now head of energy for London, having been promoted with immediate effect. He brings more than 15 years of London Market experience to the post.

“Boyle is perfectly placed to lead LSM’s globally recognised, market-leading underwriting team,” the specialist insurer said in a release. “Boyle and his team will continue to work closely with LSM’s in-house risk engineers and claims team to provide agile solutions for clients and brokers.”

Based in London, the Swiss Re Corporate Solutions alumnus reports to London chief underwriting officer Melanie O’Neill and LSM CUO and global energy head Ronald Bolaños.      

“I am really happy to congratulate James on his new role,” O’Neill commented. “Since joining Liberty in 2021, he has risen through the ranks and become an invaluable member of the team.

“I am confident that he will continue to provide excellent leadership and drive the London energy team to deliver for our clients and broking partners now and in the future.”
