New Dawn Risk has appointed Nicky Stokes (pictured) as head of management liability and financial institutions.
Stokes joins the specialist intermediary from Liberty Specialty Markets in Dubai, where she was AVP for professional indemnity, with additional responsibility for the D&O, bankers blanket bond and cyber portfolio for local and international clients throughout the Middle East and Africa, a statement from New Dawn Risk said.
With more than 20 years’ experience in the insurance industry, Stokes was previously based in South Africa where she held senior roles at companies including Marsh and AIG. She holds an MBA from the University of Reading in the UK and a PMD from the University of Pretoria.
“With rates increasing dramatically in all regions for D&O and financial institutions insurance, clients need experienced brokers to ensure that they are getting the best possible results in an extremely challenging environment,” Max Carter, CEO of New Dawn Risk, said. “Nicky’s breadth of international experience in both underwriting and broking will help us to deliver an even more compelling proposition to our clients, wherever they operate.”
