Consilium has announced the appointment of Richard Ellis (pictured above) as an associate partner placing specialist and complex property risks.
Ellis comes to Consilium from Citynet Insurance brokers, where he served as a senior broker on its property and casualty team. With 38 years of experience in both retail and wholesale property and liability insurance, including the placement of terrorism, high-net-worth, and contingency risks, he has held senior broker roles at several leading firms, including Tasker & Partners, Senior Wright Ltd, CBC UK, and Jelf.
He brings with him a network of underwriters and brokers, operating in both London and Company Markets, and extensive expertise in complex and non-standard property placements. As part of the Consilium property team, Ellis will be responsible for assisting brokers and their clients in placing specialized property and commercial combined policies.
“We’re delighted to welcome Richard to the team. His industry expertise and experience will be of huge benefit to our brokers and their clients with complex property risks. It’s the right time to grow our property team, and Richard’s appointment further underpins our desire to offer clients deep expertise and unrivalled service for all specialist and complex property needs,” Consilium managing director Matt Pini said.
Likewise, Ellis also commented on his appointment, citing the specialty broker’s “huge potential for growth” as something that attracted him to Consilium.
“I am excited to be part of a property team with such a great reputation in the market, and I look forward to playing my part in expanding its book by creating the right solutions and delivering best outcomes. As Consilium says, the opportunities are limitless,” Ellis said.
Earlier this year, the Aventum-owned broker also announced that it had secured a license from the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority (CIMA), allowing Consilium to extend its focus to the region and serve its financial, professional, construction, and commercial property sectors.
