An experienced marine underwriting specialist has joined Markel International at its London office.
The specialist insurer has announced the appointment of Brook Styles (pictured) as cargo, specie, and terrorism underwriter.
In his new role, Styles will be reporting to Chris Fenn, divisional managing director of international marine at Markel International, and will be working with the cargo, specie, and terrorism teams on existing portfolios as well as helping to drive new products.
Styles has over 13 years of experience in marine underwriting, beginning his career at Markel. He re-joins Markel from Pioneer Underwriting, where he was most recently head of marine specialty.
“We’re delighted to welcome Brook back to Markel and look forward to the important role he will be playing in the further development of our marine capabilities,” said Fenn. “He brings with him a strong network of broker relationships, excellent technical underwriting abilities and a wealth of knowledge and expertise in these key classes”.
