Specialist insurer Markel International has announced the appointment of Carl Titterton as divisional managing director of its trade credit, political risk and surety (TCPRS) team.
Titterton joined Markel International in April 2010 as a senior underwriter, specialising in credit insurance, and supported the integration of trade credit, political risk and surety into Markel.
Prior to Markel, he held senior underwriter roles at both ACE European Group and Coface over 18 years, working in London, New York and Paris.
Titterton’s new role is effective from 1 February, 2020, and will see him report to James Hastings, managing director of wholesale.
The appointment also means that Titterton will become a member of Markel International’s wholesale leadership team.
“During Carl’s ten years at Markel, he has been invaluable in helping the TCPRS team to develop important new lines of business and to expand into territories where Markel’s TCPRS accounts are now thriving,” said Hastings.
“Today, we have a well-established and highly respected trade credit, political risk and surety team spanning the globe,” he added. “I look forward to working closely with Carl and his team to achieve even greater success.”
