Underwriting hires Darren Pugh and Lance Carter are the latest additions to the NMU roster.
“We’re delighted to welcome Darren and Lance to the NMU family,” said chief executive David Perfect, “strengthening our already significant team.
“Their appointments demonstrate our commitment to the market, and their experience and expertise ensures that we continue to deliver the award-winning service our broker partners have come to expect of us.”
Pugh and Carter specialise in engineering insurance and cargo & freight liability, respectively. Together, they bring more than 50 years of industry experience to NMU.
“I’m looking forward to this exciting new challenge, particularly working with new colleagues and providing brokers with the seamless personal service and tailored solutions that NMU is so well known for in the market,” stated Pugh, an Allianz veteran whose insurance career began in 1996 at Scottish Boiler.
More recently, the engineering underwriting expert focussed on areas such as contractors’ all risks and plant and machinery movement.
Carter, meanwhile, has been in the insurance industry for 28 years, the last 16 of which were spent in the cargo & freight space. The stalwart’s credentials include stints at CNA, Zurich, and Fiducia.
He commented: “I’m thrilled to be joining NMU, a company with a great reputation in the industry with brokers and clients alike, working alongside a multitude of skilled and respected colleagues.”
