Global reinsurance brokerage Ed has announced the appointment of John Turner as Chairman of Ed Bermuda, reporting to Chris Bonard, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Ed Bermuda.
In this newly created position, Turner will provide hands-on support to realise the potential of the recently established operation.
In June 2015, Ed received regulatory approval from the Bermuda Monetary Authority (BMA) for its Bermuda operation, which provides its full range of broking services.
Turner joins Ed Bermuda from rival re/insurance broker Aon, where he most recently served as Chairman of Aon Commercial Risk Solutions UK & Americas. He brings more than four decades of re/insurance market experience to the role, 30 of which he spent in Lloyd’s broking.
During his career, Turner has led teams covering property, casualty, terrorism, power, energy, and construction.
Commenting on the appointment, Bonard said: “It’s fantastic to welcome John to the team; he brings a weight of experience, as well as longstanding relationships with clients and the market. John excels at developing links with clients and carriers, which will be invaluable as we build up our services on the island.”
Turner added: “I’m looking forward to joining Ed in Bermuda, supporting Chris as we build a cross class team of highly motivated professionals, as well as being very much hands on with day to day broking. Ed Bermuda is creating meaningful new capacity as the leading wholesale broker on the island, supported by world class technology. It’s an exciting venture to be part of.”
