A recent ballot of Lloyd’s managing agents has elected three new members to Lloyd’s Market Association’s (LMA) Marine Committee, in addition to re-electing seven others.
The committee will now welcome James McDonald, who serves as Global Head of Marine and Energy at Talbot, Richard Tomlin, who is currently Atrium’s Class Underwriter for Marine Property, and Simon Mason, who is Head of Energy at Apollo.
Chaired by Peter McIntosh, Senior Underwriter for Marine Energy at Ark Syndicate, the LMA Marine Committee oversees Lloyd’s marine underwriting community and offers the LMA Board strategic advice on marine business.
LMA’s Head of Marine, Neil Roberts, said: “I am pleased to welcome James MacDonald, Richard Tomlin and Simon Mason to the committee. Their combined knowledge and experience of the market will be an invaluable asset.
“The high standard of candidates putting themselves forward has enabled us to assemble an impressive committee of highly respected experts and leaders in the marine market.”
Committee members will serve a term of two years, and their initial priorities include increasing the market’s understanding of cyber exposure and coverage issues, and addressing the disparity between regulatory requirements and current market practices related to cyber.
