Tokio Marine Kiln taps new head of claims

Tokio Marine Kiln (TMK) has announced the appointment of Tobin Ryan as head of claims following the retirement of Nick Sinfield. Ryan previously served as the company’s head of property and special lines claims.

In his new role, Ryan will lead a newly created team:

  • Laura Hollingsworth – promoted to head of claims operations.
  • Lee Bennett – promoted to head of a newly formed delegated claims team.
  • Patrick Cannon – promoted to head of enterprise risk and casualty claims.
  • Victoria Joslin – promoted to head of property, marine and aviation claims.

Ryan has more than 30 years of experience in the London market. Prior to joining TMK in 2012, he spent a decade at Beazley as a property claims manager. Ryan specializes in managing large and complex losses.

Sinfield is retiring after more than 30 years in the insurance industry. He has served as TMK’s group head of claims since 2015.

“We are excited to welcome Tobin to his new role and look forward to the team’s continued success under his leadership,” said Nick Hutton-Penman, deputy CEO of TMK. “Nick retires from TMK leaving the claims team in an exceptionally strong position and with significant depth of talent in the management team, who I am confident will take the claims department forward. I would like to thank Nick for his outstanding contribution to TMK and wish him a very long and happy retirement.”

“I am honored to be head of claims for TMK, which underscores our philosophy of developing talent and promoting from within,” Ryan said. “TMK is entering very exciting times, and I am delighted to be part of a company with such a strong business strategy and vision for the future.”
