Insurance and reinsurance broker Beach & Associates (Beach) has announced the appointment of Daniel Shaw as Senior Vice President (SVP), leading the firm’s wholesale property and casualty treaty unit in London.
Shaw brings nearly two decades of industry experience to the new role, and most recently served as North American Casualty Treaty reinsurance broker at Aon Benfield, the reinsurance arm of Aon. Before Aon, Shaw worked at E.W Blanch as an account manager for the US property treaty division. He began his career at C.E Heath.
Shaw will be based in the London office, and report to Chief Executive Officer (CEO), London and International, Jason Howard, who commented; “The broking market is changing. It also faces severe challenges. To overcome them, brokers will need to innovate their traditional business models and focus on delivering independent, un-conflicted advice and transactional expertise.
“They must compete on expertise, not on leverage. This is central to our approach at Beach. Daniel is an established expert who shares our philosophy. His experience and deep knowledge of this sector will significantly enhance our proposition and help cement our position in the market. I am very pleased to welcome him to the team.”
