Specialist insurer Beazley has announced the appointment Chris Hill as an underwriter within its US marine team.
Based in New York, Hill will underwrite a US-wide book of marine hull and liability risks.
He joins Beazley from Berkley Offshore Underwriting Managers where he spent more than seven years, most recently as vice president in the marine underwriting team.
Hill previously held underwriting roles at Starr Insurance Companies and The Hartford and was an account executive at Gallagher.
Reporting to Steve Vivian, who launched Beazley’s US marine business in 2017, Hill will join John Moy and Reese Lever on the marine underwriting team.
“I’m very pleased to welcome Christo our team,” said Vivian. “Chris is highly respected in the marine insurance industry and brings a wealth of underwriting and market experience that will help us to realise our ambitions of steady and consistent growth.”
“We are well positioned to harness current market opportunities and to continue developing long-term partnerships with brokers and clients.”
