Specialist reinsurance broker Capsicum Re has appointed Ed Le Flufy and Piers English to its London property and specialty division.
Le Flufy joins Capsicum Re from BMS as a specialty broker focusing on cyber, and will now report to Ian Newman, Capsicum Re’s Global Head of Cyber.
He has more than a decades’ property, casualty and specialty experience, and began his career on BMS’s graduate scheme, eventually becoming divisional director of the firm’s global reinsurance team.
English joins Capsicum Re as a treaty reinsurance broker from Accenture, and will now report to Patrick Sheehy, partner – specialty casualty.
He most recently served as a management consultant in the London market insurance division at Accenture, before which he was a casualty treaty broker at Willis Re for four years.
Newman commented on the appointments: “Rapid technological evolution is making the possibility of a marketplace consisting of three core classes – property, casualty and cyber (PC&C) – evermore likely. In preparation, we continue to bring on exceptional talent of Ed and Piers’ calibre to bolster our capabilities, as we help clients navigate the new risks they face.”
Sheehy added: “I am delighted to welcome Piers to the team. His extensive knowledge of casualty treaty will complement the skills of our existing team, as we help clients around the world prepare for the risks of the future.”
