Prior to joining Beazley, Sanches held underwriting positions at Tokio Marine HCC where he spent more than seven years, most recently as senior underwriter covering specialty lines including healthcare.

“The healthcare liability insurance market is rapidly evolving in response to the changing legal landscape and the impact of technology on both healthcare provision and the ability to manage risks,” said John Livatino, head of US miscellaneous medical & life sciences at Beazley. “We have been expanding our team of US underwriters as we develop new healthcare products and services to meet growing demand for specialized insurance from brokers and their clients. I’m very pleased to welcome Justin to our team at this exciting time for our market.”
