Insurance and reinsurance brokerage Beach & Associates has announced that Christopher Williamson has joined its wholesale division to focus on developing Beach’s new transportation portfolio.
Williamson joins from Chesterfield’s North American division where he was involved with binding authorities and facilities, principally in the transportation related arena.
In his new role, he will be based in Beach’s London office, reporting to John Sutton, CEO of Wholesale.
“Since the launch of our wholesale team in 2018, our goal has been to build an independently minded and highly creative team that shares the work ethic and culture that Beach is known for, and Christopher embodies these values,” said Sutton.
“His experience in facilities and binding authorities is a tremendous asset for us as we look to service our Acrisure Partner network and other third party production sources within our existing and prospective client base. I look forward to working with him to build our transportation portfolio.”
Williamson also commented: “Beach’s independence, intellectual firepower and analytical capability marks them out as a leading broking firm, so I am delighted to have the opportunity to help develop its transportation offering.”
“It is also part of the world’s fastest growing broker so has the benefit of Acrisure’s financial strength and expanding distribution network, which will be incredibly valuable as we grow this book. I look forward to working with the rest of the wholesale team as we embark on this journey.”
