Reinsurance brokerage Beach & Associates has continued to expand its London Wholesale Division with the appointments of Gavin Johns and Richard Emson.
Johns and Emson both join the company from JLT Re, where they operated within the Facilities & Binders Division.
They each bring over 30 years’ of industry experience in the binding authority and open market general and professional liability spaces, as well as established trading relationships with London and International markets.
“We are delighted to complement our existing team with another two highly experienced market practitioners,” said John Sutton, CEO of Wholesale at Beach.
“The Beach Wholesale Division started in early 2018 and has since grown into a significant platform comprised of both up and coming young professionals as well as several more seasoned producers,” he continued.
“This platform is a key growth area for Beach and incorporating Gavin and Richard’s significant expertise will allow us to expand our offering. This is an exciting time for us, and I am extremely pleased with the quality and range of skills we continue to attract to our London team.”
This latest announcement continues the expansion of Beach’s London wholesale operations, which were previously bolstered by the addition of Nick Fearon joins from Miller Insurance Services and Lee Bonnett from Marsh Specialty back in April 2019.
