Sompo taps new executive VP

Global specialty insurance provider Sompo International Holdings has announced the appointment of Patrick Corbett as executive vice president and global head of accident and health, international insurance. Corbett will be based in London and will report to Richard Housely, chief underwriting officer of international insurance.

“With a proven track record in A&H and business development, Patrick will be a great asset to our growing Sompo International team,” said Julian James, CEO of international insurance at Sompo. “He will have responsibility for building out our A&H capability, beyond our traditional London wholesale offering, across the UK, Europe and around the world.

“This will require a clear, client-centric focus – looking at the issues presented by today’s uncertain and changing risk landscape through the eyes of insurance buyers and ensuring that we develop solutions that address their specific needs. He will lead an established and dynamic team that strives to build solid, strategic relationships with clients to ensure that we deliver what they need for the long term.”
