McGill and Partners has hired Peter Chesman (pictured) as partner for its UK structured solutions team.
According to a statement from the specialist re/insurance broker, Chesman’s role will focus on alternative risk financing and in particular captives and multi-year structures, and he will work with large complex clients and captives across multiple lines of insurance.
Chesman has re-joined the insurance industry after an 18-month break. He was with Aon for 15 years, beginning his career there in 2004 with the firm’s graduate scheme and ending in 2019 as client director. During his tenure, he held roles in risk finance consulting and captives, along with strategic client leadership.
“Peter brings years of expertise and knowledge to the role and we are thrilled to welcome him to the team,” said Brian Kirwan, partner and head of structured solutions. “Peter’s decade of hands-on experience in captive related services will assist our clients to optimise their captive and risk financing strategy.”
Since its inception in May 2019, McGill and Partners has significantly grown its headcount and continues to bring in expert talent to support its growth ambitions. The brokerage now has over 340 employees across offices in London, New York, Miami and Dublin.
“At McGill and Partners, we pride ourselves on hiring the best talent in the market with deep experience and knowledge,” Kirwan added. “Peter is a great representative of the excellence we seek within the insurance space. I look forward to working with him as we continue to grow our team from strength to strength.”
