3rd September 2019 - Author: Matt Sheehan

BGC Insurance Group (BGCI), a division of broker and fintech firm BGC Partners, has announced the addition of Bruce Fine to its new global aviation and space re/insurance brokerage.

Based in Atlanta and Chicago, Fine will serve as Managing Partner for US Aviation and Aerospace, as well as President of the Aviation Industry Financial Solutions Division.

He joins BGCI from JLT Specialty, where he most recently served as Executive Vice President and Global Aerospace Manufacturers and Infrastructure Industry Leader.

Fine has more than 35 years’ experience in the aviation re/insurance sector, having begun his career in 1984 as an Aviation Underwriter for CIGNA.

Since then, he has held a number of senior aviation roles, including as Vice President at Alexander & Alexander, Senior Vice President at Willis Global Aviation, and as a Managing Director at Marsh until 2018.

Taking up his new role at BGCI with immediate effect, Fine will now report to Marcel Chad, President of the new aviation and aerospace business.

“We are building a bespoke alternative to the current aviation industry offering,” said Chad. “Bruce is a recognised expert in our field with a proven ability to define and deliver innovative client solutions and advocacy.”

“His extensive experience in leading and developing aviation and aerospace business will underpin our ability to attract clients and talent as we build our growing business,” he continued. “It gives me great pleasure to welcome Bruce to the team.”

Fine’s appointment follows the addition of two Marsh executive’s to BGCI’s growing aviation and space brokerage last month, namely Oyin Heath and Mark Costin.
