Niche construction and commercial lines MGA Thames Underwriting has appointed four underwriters to be split between a new office in Leadenhall Street and its headquarters in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex.
Stuart Daffin and Paul Savva both join the newly established London office as construction new business underwriters and most recently served at HSB Engineering and Pen Underwriting respectively.
“Since establishing the business almost ten years ago, we’ve focused on a plan of sustainable and profitable growth around our core areas of niche underwriting expertise,” said Keith Syrett, Director at Thames Underwriting.
“Now, as a result of this focus and with the support of our growing network of broking partners, we have taken the important next step in our development. We believe having an underwriting presence in EC3 is a significant stage in our growth journey.”
“I’m pleased to be bringing in established and respected underwriters of Stuart and Paul’s reputation. They will be integral to the success and future development of the London office and I am looking forward to working with them.”
Also joining Thames Underwriting are James Skeggs and Don Black. Both underwriters have joined the commercial combined/property team in the firm’s Leigh on Sea office.
Skeggs moves from Coast Underwriting, where he worked for 4 years, while Black joins from MS Amlin.
