Navigators International has expanded its European presence with the opening of a Spain office, to be headed up by Carlos Peña Kaiser as Country Manager.
Using its newly capitalised retail insurer, Navigators International, the carrier hopes to target Spain-domiciled companies.
The move comes as part of a strategy of geographic expansion of specialty insurance.
Guillaume Déal, Managing Director, Continental Europe, commented; “we now have five branches across the Continent of Europe. This broad network, coupled with our strategic relationship in the Nordic region, allows us to share our technical expertise and local knowledge with a growing number of brokers and companies in the region.”
Kaiser joins Navigators to lead the Spain office from W.R. Berkley, where he was Head of Underwriting and Middle Market Operations.
Previously, he spent nearly 15 years with Chubb, most recently serving as General Manager of Spain.
Managing Director, Continental Europe, Déal, said; “Carlos is uniquely qualified to lead Navigators’ entry into Spain, as he has extensive insight into the specialty insurance landscape in the region and deep knowledge of the sophisticated solutions that our clients depend on us to deliver.”
