London MGA brings in chief underwriting officer

After nearly 23 years at MS Amlin, senior underwriter Lisa Perry is moving to White Oak Underwriting Agency to take on the role of chief underwriting officer.

In a release, the London-based specialist insurance and reinsurance managing general agent said Perry will be in charge of driving White Oak’s underwriting strategy and developing existing business plans. Additionally, the transportation expert will lead the agency’s transportation unit while managing her own client business portfolio.

“I am hugely excited to be joining the White Oak team and looking forward to starting a new chapter at a dynamic, forward-thinking, and diverse company,” said Perry, whose credentials also include broking stints at Aon and Macey Williams Insurance Brokers.  

With a focus on niche markets, White Oak specialises in transportation, extended warranty, guaranteed asset protection, construction, plant & machinery, and forestry.

Commenting on the appointment, managing director Holly Shepherd stated: “I am absolutely thrilled that Lisa is joining White Oak as her leadership, market reputation, and technical expertise will all be fundamental to our future success.

“We are celebrating White Oak’s 10th anniversary in 2020. It’s a fitting and highly significant milestone in our development that an individual of Lisa Perry’s calibre is joining us to lead our underwriting strategy as we move into our second decade.”
