Lonmar Global Risks, dba Ropner Insurance Service, has named John Naughton (pictured) as executive director, as part of its marine cargo team.

According to a release, Naughton’s appointment will help drive growth plans for its marine cargo team, particularly when it comes to freight and logistics. Naughton, who joins from Gallagher, will report to Lonmar managing director of cargo Simon Wilson.

“I am excited to be joining the marine team at Lonmar/Ropner and look forward to helping them grow their existing business while at the same time developing new products to complement this,” said Naughton.

Naughton added that it is currently a challenging time for the marine market, so it is a great time for him to be joining an “experienced and knowledgeable team ideally placed to handle complex and technical issues.”

“John’s connections and expertise will open up new opportunities, as well as supporting our international and domestic client base,” commented Simon Wilson. “I’m sure he will prove to be an invaluable addition to the team.”

Lonmar was acquired by Global Risk Partners (GRP) in 2016 – which in turn was acquired by Brown & Brown earlier this year. GRP is one of the UK’s largest independent insurance intermediaries.
