Dermot Dick (pictured), an underwriter with more than four decades of industry experience, has been appointed as senior underwriter for energy at Specialty MGA UK.

“This is an exciting time of growth for the business, and it’s fantastic to be part of the company’s further expansion into the energy sector,” Dick, whose credentials include time spent at Oneglobal Broking, said in an emailed release.

“It’s clear from the work that Specialty MGA UK is already doing that the team recognises the huge opportunities within the energy, power, and renewables sectors. I’m very much looking forward to working with the team to increase the quality and quantity of capacity, providing clients across the world with unique and innovative solutions.”

Meanwhile group chair Manoj Kumar cited Dick’s wealth of experience and “extremely strong” global network of brokers, agents, and insurers. Dick has written business in regions including Africa, Asia, and North America.

“With the huge transformation in the energy sector over the last decade and growing demand for renewables globally, I’m excited to be adding such an experienced and well regarded expert to our team,” Kumar said.

Philippe Bara, chief underwriting officer at Specialty MGA UK, added: “With Dermot now part of our team, our clients will get the benefit of deep technical expertise, and can expect a range of bespoke coverages to very difficult and hard to place risks.”
