Markel UK expands regional team in the south

There are two fresh faces at SME specialist insurer Markel UK.

The firm has attempted to bolster its business development and underwriting functions across the South of England and Wales with a double swoop.

First, it has added Simon Marriott, who is set to lead the business development function across both the South West and South Wales. His responsibilities include accelerating the team’s growth and expanding broker relations. Marriott makes the switch from RSA, where he had been a regional manager – he has also enjoyed stints at the likes of NIG and AXA.

Meanwhile, Vishal Patel becomes senior underwriter and will lead Markel’s technology and life sciences product across the South.

“We are delighted to be expanding the team further by welcoming Simon and Vishal, both of whom bring vast knowledge, experience and connections to the business,” said Markel regional manager – south, Mark Lowther. “Markel has a tremendous broker panel in the South and Wales region and these appointments will be a further boost as we look to grow the business over the next few years.”
