Sompo International Holdings Ltd., the Bermuda-based specialty provider of property and casualty insurance and reinsurance, has announced the appointment of James McDonald as its new Head of London Market Energy.
McDonald has more than 30 years of experience across both the broking and underwriting sectors.
He joins Sompo International from Talbot and has previously held senior roles at Cotesworth, Goshawk and Sedgwick.
Julian James, Chief Executive Officer for International Insurance at Sompo International, commented on the appointment.
“As the industry adapts to the post-Covid world, our focus is on getting ever closer to our clients and broker partners to deliver the solutions they need to navigate this changing risk environment,” James said.
“Whilst the energy sector is challenged by the pandemic, increased volatility in oil prices and other factors, we continue to take a long-term view of this important class of business and remain committed to pursuing sustainable growth through a connected approach across upstream, downstream and renewables.”
