Pen Underwriting has appointed Dan Hydleman as a specialist technology underwriter.

Dixon said: “Dan is a talented and ambitious underwriter who is keen to carve out and build on his existing specialism in the tech sector. He brings exactly the right kind of energy, technical skills and a laser-like focus on the customer experience, at a time when giving brokers a quick turnaround, access to expertise and delivering a first-class service rightly remain the number one game in town.”

Also coming to Pen Underwriting from Hiscox, Dixon moved to the firm in September last year. Prior to that he held a range of underwriting, business development and leadership roles focused on professional indemnity and the wider field of specialist commercial insurance from 2009.

He added: “Dan’s experience of the fast-evolving and complex risk needs of a growing breed of tech sector companies, coupled with an understanding of how a tech sector book needs to be run and managed profitably, will be invaluable as we continue to grow sustainably but at pace in this rapidly expanding area. It’s also great to be investing in underwriting talent outside of London, to provide on-the-ground technical expertise for our regional brokers as required.”
