Three senior underwriting hires have been picked by Aviva for its financial lines team within the company’s global corporate and specialty (GCS) business.

The new GCS colleagues are the following:

  • Samantha Shean – financial institutions head

  • Kate Albert – professional indemnity underwriting manager

Shean, Goddard, and Albert were snapped up from AXIS Capital, Chubb, and Landmark Underwriting, respectively.

“We are continuing to hire market-leading talent to build a stronger, more diverse GCS team. I am confident that Sam, Duncan, and Kate will help us deliver good customer outcomes, great service for our brokers and meet the ambitious growth targets we have set for the business.”
