Specialist reinsurance broker Capsicum Re has appointed Jerry Blake partner within Gallagher Re, effective September 2021.
The company announced this month plans to rebrand itself to better reflect its parent company, aligning its reinsurance business with the broader Gallagher retail and wholesale insurance broking arm.
Capsicum Re was launched in December 2013 as a strategic partnership between Gallagher and its founders.
Blake joins the Gallagher Re team from Aon, where he has held multiple senior broking positions during his 34 years with the company.
“Hiring the best people into our expanding business is a core part of our strategy, so we are delighted that the prospect of joining Gallagher Re is proving to have such huge appeal to major industry talent such as Jerry,” said Rupert Swallow, CEO of Capsicum Re.
“His experience, expertise and reputation in the market all speaks to why we see Jerry as a stellar addition to our growing team and I look forward to welcoming him into Gallagher Re.”
