Landmark Underwriting to enter property market | Insurance Business UK
Managing general agent Landmark Underwriting has hired a property head to mark the company’s expansion into the property market.
Taking the role of head of property on January 3 next year is Andrew Ravenscroft (pictured), whose class underwriter credentials include stints at Brit and Amlin. He will bring more than two decades of industry experience to the London-headquartered agency.
“I am delighted to be joining Landmark’s core underwriting leadership team,” said Ravenscroft, who will also be in charge of Landmark’s cycling club. “I am looking forward to 2023 and this new and exciting challenge.
“The underwriting group has taken their expansion seriously and at the right moments since it opened in London, and we will be well-placed in 2023 to continue with this controlled growth, building on the strength of the specialist portfolio.”
Landmark specialises in professional indemnity and directors & officers cover.
Commenting on the expansion, managing director David Ratledge noted: “Landmark has both experienced and controlled growth over the past few years. We have simultaneously developed an acquisition plan and organic growth by the shareholders, which has produced a solid foundation to provide an exciting trajectory both for the group and the underwriting teams for years to come.
“Andrew joining is the right stage for Landmark to develop their offering with an expert in his field and compliment the group’s previous RAD acquisition in 2022. I am personally looking forward to be working with Andrew, having 2023 start with an exciting step forward for the MGA.”
