Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance adds D&O underwriting head

Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance (BHSI) has tapped industry veteran Chris Warrior to lead directors & officers (D&O) liability underwriting in the UK and Ireland.

Based at BHSI’s London office, Warrior brings 36 years of commercial D&O experience both in terms of underwriting and broking. Most recently he served as London Market management liability focus group leader at Hiscox.

The head’s arrival means the expansion of the Boston-headquartered group’s European roster.

“We are pleased to have Chris rounding out our team of executive and professional lines executives,” commented UK & Europe president Chris Colahan.

“Our team is committed to bringing the certainty customers and brokers need in a transitioning financial lines marketplace, providing professional indemnity, financial institutions, and management liability programmes with BHSI’s long-view underwriting and financial strength.”

Meanwhile Vanessa Maxwell, UK & Ireland head of executive & professional lines at BHSI, described Warrior as “exceptionally qualified” to lead the insurer’s efforts to bring what she called “sophisticated and sustainable” D&O liability solutions to brokers and customers.

“We are pleased to add his expertise to BHSI’s growing team in London,” said Maxwell.
