Re/insurance broker Miller has appointed Rhys Newland as Head of Renewable Energy and Environmental Technology.
Newland joined the company at the beginning of this month, and reports to Martin Henderson, Head of Energy.
The newly created position signals Miller’s commitment to the fast-moving renewable energy sector as it continues to make high profile appointments across its key specialist areas.
He brings over 25 years of environmental risk experience to Miller including expertise across PFI/PPP and nationally significant infrastructure projects.
Newland joins Miller from Willis Limited where, most recently, he held the position of Head of Infrastructure, specialising in environmental infrastructure.
Prior to joining Willis in 1998, he worked as an environmental consultant where he undertook work for major projects including the World Bank and EBRD.
Martin Henderson, Head of Energy, commented: “Rhys is a renowned expert in the field of renewable energy and environmental technology, and I am delighted to welcome him to Miller.
“The formation of a dedicated renewables team at Miller reflects the importance we attach to delivering the highest quality of service and insight to our clients to help them navigate the complex risks they face.
“Rhys is an ideal candidate to help spearhead our growth in this key area and we look forward to making further announcements relating to our team’s expansion over the coming months”.
