Mitsui Sumitomo at Lloyd’s announced the appointment of Darren Carr as Class Underwriter for its marine liability underwriting account in a move designed to expand that sector of its business.
Carr joined Mitsui Sumitomo at Lloyd’s from Hiscox where he was Deputy Marine Liability Underwriter. He previously spent six years at Aon, rising to the position of Director and Head of Ports, Terminals & International Liabilities.
Carr will report to Head of Marine, Caroline Koczerzat. He has “been tasked with utilizing his combined broking and underwriting experience to build the syndicate’s marine liability business to complement the established cargo, hull and specie accounts,” said the bulletin.
Peter McDermott, Active Underwriter at Mitsui Sumitomo at Lloyd’s, said the insurer was pleased to have Carr join its team “to build our marine liability account. Having worked both in underwriting and broking, he understands the specific needs of both parties when placing cover, which we believe will result in both underwriting profit and the delivery of excellent levels of service and innovation.”
Carr noted that Mitsui Sumitomo at Lloyd’s is a “strong global brand” and has “a marine team with a first class reputation. This will be a long term project to grow the account in a structured and sustainable manner, through which we will aspire to add real value to our brokers, clients and the Lloyd’s market,” he added.
