Tokio Marine HCC International is bolstering its professional risks team in London with the appointments of Matthew Clayton and Ross Thompson as senior underwriters and Jonathan Olle as senior media property and liability underwriter.
Clayton joins Tokio Marine after 16 years at Hiscox, where he held a range of senior underwriting roles in professional and specialty classes, most recently as head of central underwriting. He has significant experience underwriting professional indemnity (including technology and media), directors & officers, liability, and property lines of business.
Thompson was previously head of professional indemnity of Kelliher Insurance Group, with 18 years’ experience across broking and underwriting, with a particular specialism in construction risks.
Olle brings 20 years’ experience in media property & liability underwriting. In his previous role as account executive at James Hallam Insurance Brokers, he managed a broad range of media & entertainment clients. Prior to this, Olle worked at Tysers and Towergate Coverex, underwriting specialist delegated media policies.
“We are really pleased that Matthew, Ross and Jonathan have decided to join what is already a very strong and experienced professional risks team,” said Tony Browne, managing director of professional risks at Tokio Marine HCC International.
The trio have joined the company at an “exciting” time, as it seeks to grow its presence within the UK broking market, according to Browne.
“The breadth and depth of knowledge they have gained over the years means that they will all play an important role in enhancing our professional indemnity, liability and packaged product offerings to our broker panel and clients across the United Kingdom,” he added.
“They have an excellent reputation in the market, with a skill set that complements the existing team, and I look forward to working with them.”
