Lloyd’s of London insurer and reinsurer MS Amlin Underwriting Limited (MS AUL) has appointed Sam Geddes as Head of Property and Allied Lines Division.
In this position, Geddes will have oversight of MS AUL’s diverse property division which includes its Commercial Property ‘D&F’, Property Binder Units and Auto business.
His appointment follows a reorganisation of MS AUL’s underwriting structure into three distinct units, including property and allied lines; specialty; and reinsurance.
Geddes brings over 20 years of market experience to the role, with extensive experience of underwriting in both Asia and the United States having spent much of his career based in Hong Kong and New York.
His most recent role has been with Everest Global Markets, which he joined in 2016 as Deputy Active Underwriter. Prior to this he held senior roles at Tokio Marine Kiln and MSIG Syndicate 3210.
Geddes will take up his role later this year and report to Andrew Carrier, CUO of MS AUL.
Carrier commented: “I am delighted to announce that Sam will be joining MS AUL as Head of Property and Allied Lines. With his appointment following the recent announcement that Matthew Wilken will be joining the business as Head of Reinsurance, both hires demonstrate our ability to attract high calibre talent into the business and support our commitment to enhance the bench strength of our underwriting leadership team.”
