Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance (BHSI) has further expanded its presence in Australia with the opening of a new office in Perth, Western Australia, appointing Anthony Prindiville as Head of Casualty Underwriting and Mark Shepard as Head of Property Underwriting, both joining from Chubb.
Chris Colahan, President, Australasia, said: “Expanding our footprint into Western Australia will enhance our ability to build lasting relationships with brokers and customers throughout the country.
“We are pleased to have Anthony and Mark at the helm as we build our local team in Perth. We look forward to developing a full suite of insurance products, risk management and claims services in this region.”
Like the BHSI offices in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, the Perth office will underwrite casualty, property, mining, energy, construction, power, marine, transport and logistics, healthcare liability, accident and health, and executive and professional lines for a broad range of business segments.
Prindiville comes to BHSI with over 30 years of insurance industry experience, having most recently served as Global Distribution Manager at Chubb Insurance Australia.
Shepard has been in the industry for over 16 years, and joins from a role as Underwriting Manager for Property, Technical Lines and Energy at Chubb Insurance Australia.
