Williams has a specialist focus in general casualty and energy liability in the Bermuda marketplace, and has previously served as Head of Specialty at RK Harrison and was previously a managing director at JLT Specialty Bermuda.
Commenting on the appointments, Chicken said: “We are determined to attract the best talent to BMS Energy to ensure we continue to excel for our clients in these challenging times and deliver a broad access to markets in London, Europe and Bermuda. People like Robbie, Russell and Alison, whose combinations of experience, specialist expertise and relationships, continue to strengthen our team’s offering for our retailers and Insureds.
