24th April 2018 - Author: Matt Sheehan

BMS Group Limited, an independent specialist insurance and reinsurance broker, has appointed Kristina Juul and Richard Force as Divisional Directors in its energy broking division, which was launched in February 2018.

BMS logoBoth Juul and Force will report to James Chicken, the newly appointed Managing Director of the energy division, who joins BMS in August.

Juul will be responsible for servicing and placing energy liability accounts, and will work closely with Charles Bowring, Chairman of Energy at BMS.

She joins BMS from i4Intelligence Limited, where she advised the re/insurance market on artificial intelligence (AI) and data analytics services, and has previously served as Vice President of the Global Energy division and leader of the energy liability team at Lockton, and as an energy broker and risk analyst at Alesco.

In his new role, Force will provide senior technical resource to the downstream property team at BMS, and will place renewable energy business.


He was most recently Senior Account Executive in the energy division at Price Forbes, where he served for 14 years.

Ian Gormley, Director of BMS Group, commented: “The establishment of an energy division is a key plank of our growth strategy at BMS. We have identified substantial opportunities in the sector, as demand from clients grows for a broker that will provide sharp, tailored and focused solutions to the risks they face.

“We are assembling a growing team of recognised market leaders as part of our expansion into the energy sector, and I am delighted that such high-calibre individuals as Kristina and Richard will form part of our expert team. I would therefore like to welcome them to BMS.”
