Liberty Specialty Markets (LSM) has announced the appointment of Marilyne Furlan (pictured above) as the head of casualty for Europe, effective in December.

Taking over from Katja Bobrowski, who is set to retire in February 2024, Furlan will collaborate with her predecessor to ensure a smooth transition for LSM’s clients and brokers in the region. Her primary responsibilities encompass steering sustainable growth across casualty lines in Europe. Additionally, she will provide oversight and leadership concerning LSM’s casualty underwriting strategy and product offerings.

Furlan joins LSM from RSA, where she held various key roles in casualty management. Her most recent position at RSA was as the head of liability lines for Europe.

In her new role, Furlan will be reporting to Pierre-Edouard Fraigneau, chief underwriting officer of LSM, Europe. She is expected to play an active part within the European underwriting management team and Liberty’s casualty global product board, with her base located in Paris.

“We thank Katja for her instrumental support in building and leading our European casualty book and wish her the best in her retirement,” Fraigneau said. “Marilyne’s two decades of industry experience will be vital in supporting our strategic growth in the region as we continue to deliver our global casualty ambitions across LSM. She has a track record of high performance in casualty management roles, and it’s great to have her on board.”
