Lockton Re has appointed Oliver Brew as cyber practice leader in London, a newly created role.

Brew began his career at WTW, and he later held senior underwriting roles with Aspen, Hiscox and Liberty. Most recently, he was head of client success at CyberCube. For the past 10 years, Brew has been a regular contributor in various market forums, initiatives and key conferences.

“We are delighted to be welcoming Oli to our fast-growing global cyber platform,” said Keith Harrison, Lockton Re International CEO. “He will work closely with the team in London as well as our cyber experts in Bermuda and North America. We see increasing demand around the globe for cyber advice and expertise, and over the last three years have been building a best-in-class global cyber reinsurance client offering. Oli will be joining us in London during November and him joining Lockton Re is testament to our ongoing and substantial commitment to the cyber reinsurance space.”

According to Lockton Re, Brew brings substantial experience in the academe and business to serve the company’s clients. He will work with his counterparts in Bermuda and North America to cement Lockton Re’s position in the important and fast-evolving cyber market.

“Oli is a critical addition to our cyber capability in London and globally,” said Paul Upton, head of specialty, Lockton Re. “This is such a specialised and developing segment, where clients are looking for Lockton Re to deliver insight and capacity equal to their ambitions. We are looking forward to working with Oli when he joins us next month.”
