Liberty Specialty Markets (LSM), the London underwriting centre of Liberty Mutual Insurance, has appointed Florence Bidard as Head of liabilities for France with immediate effect.
Based in Paris, Bidard will report to Richard Deguettes, LSM’s General Manager of France and will oversee the underwriting and development of its general civil, professional civil and environmental liability books.
Bidard began her career as a broker before joining AIG in 2011, where she held various underwriting and management positions in financial risk and then civil liability as head of underwriting unit.
She went on to become development and relationship brokerage manager for the company.
“Our suite of liability solutions is a key part of our product portfolio and Florence’s broad experience of underwriting and relationship management will be instrumental in helping us achieve our growth ambitions,” said Deguettes.
“She joins at an exciting time as we expand on strong capabilities in France.”
