Reinsurance brokerage, risk and capital strategic advisory firm TigerRisk Partners has appointed Neill Cotton and Mark Sleet to lead its binding authority and program businesses.
Cotton brings over 30 years’ experience to the role and was most recently a partner at JLT Re where he headed the binding authority and program businesses.
“I have a huge regard for the team that TigerRisk has been able to assemble,” said Cotton.
“They’re innovative, entrepreneurial and have an outstanding analytics capability. Their platform in London is ideal for developing binding authority and program businesses.”
Sleet, who was most recently a partner at JLT Re, started his career at J.H. Minet. In 1993, he joined Aon Re and became an executive director.
Sleet then joined Benfield where he was one of the European and North American team leaders. He then moved to Miller Insurance Brokers to specialise in treaty and binding authorities.
“TigerRisk have built a great organization,” commented Sleet. “They’re successful at everything they do. With a reputation for innovation and the absence of legacy issues, TigerRisk is in a great position to become a major player in the binding authority and program space.”
Commenting on the appointment, TigerRisk Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, (UK) Hugo Crawley said, “TigerRisk is very proud to welcome these two highly experienced and respected professionals.”
“Neill is an exemplary professional in the P&C program discipline. He has led his own Lloyd’s business and has also run divisions in larger Lloyd’s brokers. We’re delighted he is joining TigerRisk to be a catalyst for our growth plans in this space.”
“Mark Sleet is a well-respected market practitioner and proven producer in the specialty lines classes and I’m delighted he’s joining us to enhance our product offering and build our binding authority and program business,” added Crawley.
Rod Fox, CEO of TigerRisk, added, “We are excited about the opportunity ahead of us. Neill and Mark will play a key role in helping us take a strategic approach to developing this business, which is consistent with how we have successfully built our other Tiger businesses over the past 10 years.”
Both Cotton and Sleet will be headquartered in TigerRisk’s London office.
