Andrew Corton is moving to Pioneer Underwriters to serve as project cargo underwriter.
Making the switch from Pembroke Managing Agency, where he was divisional director for cargo, Corton brings 35 years of insurance industry experience to his new role at Pioneer. The seasoned executive began his career at Trinity Insurance Company before spending time at the likes of Phoenix Assurance Company (now RSA) and Travelers.
“Pioneer is pursuing a long-term strategy of strengthening our capabilities in areas where we see significant opportunity, such as project cargo,” said chief executive Andrew McMellin.
“We have a highly respected marine specialty team, offering high-quality products across a diverse global portfolio and Andrew’s expertise enhances our offering.”
Effective March 01, Corton’s appointment will see him not only underwrite project cargo and specialist cargo risks but also support marine specialty underwriter Brook Styles. He will be based in London.
