Specialty reinsurance broker Ed has named Namik Gulsun as head of international property and casualty, making this appointment the latest after what has been a series of new hires.
Gulsun is set to take up his new position immediately, working alongside James Venton, head of U.S. property and casualty, and reporting to Chris Bonard, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Specialty.
Bonard welcomed Gulsun to his new role; “Namik is an excellent addition to our senior team and will play a key part in our international growth.
“Namik brings proven expertise, a track record of putting client’s interests first and in-depth knowledge of some of our key growth markets.
“His is the latest in a series of appointments which emphasise the calibre of people who, along with our existing team of specialists, will quickly separate us from our peers.”
Gulsun joins from Willis Towers Watson where he served as head of Central & Eastern Europe including Turkey & CIS in the D&F Europe team under the P&C Division.
He began his broking career in 2003 at reinsurance broker Aon Benfield.
Gulsun said he was “delighted” to have the opportunity of working with Ed; “Over the past year Ed has become viewed as a modernising and disruptive force in the broking sector. I am delighted to be joining a business where there is a clear ambition and strategy to do things differently and the scope to make a genuine difference to both the company and perhaps our industry as a whole.”
