Lockton Re has recruited Matthew Silley as a broker in the cyber practice of its specialty division. He joins from Axis Capital, where he is cyber portfolio management lead.

Silley brings to Lockton Re more than 10 years of analytics and cyber experience, with different areas of focus. Prior to Axis Capital, Silley held key roles at CyberCube and PwC UK. According to Lockton Re, Silley is actively engaged in the wider cyber industry and is a member of many industry groups. He has also made multiple contributions to the field as an author and subject matter expert.  

“Matthew will work closely with [London cyber practice lead] Oli Brew, who joined late last year, and our other cyber experts in North America and Bermuda, creating a seamless global capability,” said Paul Upton, Lockton Re’s head of specialty. “He is a huge asset as we continue to build out our division and this area of expertise, which is increasingly important to our clients.”

“Matthew is a fantastic addition to our growing cyber offering and the entire global Lockton Re team,” Brew said. “He combines strong analytical skills with the ability to work collaboratively with clients and markets. His energy, enthusiasm, strong intellect, and real drive around cyber complement our proposition as we grow our client base.”
