Reinsurance brokerage Beach & Associates has expanded its London wholesale operation with two new hires.
Nick Fearon joins from Miller Insurance Services where he led its US Professional Liability team. Beach says his appointment will bring further expertise in the financial and professional lines space.
Lee Bonnett joins from Marsh Specialty, where he served as Head of Facilities Placement.
Bonnett will lead the Delegated Authority team as Beach continues to develop new products and markets for its expanding MGA, wholesale and retail distribution client base.
“We are delighted to welcome Nick and Lee to our growing London operations; their experience and expertise will add further depth to our capabilities and our ability to offer increased service levels and innovation to our ever-growing client base,” said John Sutton, Chief Executive Officer of Wholesale at Beach.
“We are growing rapidly and our analytically powered platform and strong reinsurance capabilities are attractive both to clients and to broking talent.
“Our recent hires bring skillsets and vastly different backgrounds that will help grow both the Beach Wholesale and Delegated Authority teams; areas which are of enormous importance to the group.”
“This is an exciting time for us and I am delighted with the quality and range of experience that we continue to attract to our London based team.”
