Liberty Specialty Markets (LSM), part of Liberty Mutual Insurance Group, has appointed Roland Heinesch to serve in a newly-created cyber underwriter role in its Zurich office.

liberty-specialty-marketsReporting to Felix Böni, Switzerland General Manager, Heinesch will be responsible for the development of LSM’s cyber book in the region.

Prior to joining Liberty in 2015, Roland was a financial lines reinsurance underwriter for Munich Re and also a financial lines broker at Aon in Germany.

“All the data points to an increasing frequency and severity of cyber attacks on businesses around the world – and Swiss-based businesses are no exception to this,” said Böni.

“We have been writing cyber insurance in Switzerland for some years now, but we are seeing a real increase in demand.”

“We want to be able to give our clients the local support that they require, so this is the right time to create a Zürich-based role to service that demand and build stronger relationships across the country.”

“Roland has been working with us from London for several years and has made a very positive impact. His knowledge and expertise will be a considerable asset to our Swiss business.”
