XL Catlin’s insurance segment announced it has opened its third office in Australia, located in Brisbane.
The office will be initially staffed by Geoff Still and Steve Rogers covering property & casualty underwriting, respectively, with expansion planned into other lines over time.
Steve Williamson, regional engineering leader for XL Catlin’s property engineering division – Global Asset Protection Services (GAPS), will also be based out of the Brisbane office.
Still has been with XL Catlin since 2013, and has over 15 years’ experience in property underwriting and broking, including six years in the Brisbane market. Rogers joined XL Catlin in 2008 and has almost 20 years’ experience in liability insurance, on both the claims and underwriting sides of the business. Williamson has 21 years’ industry experience; he joined XL Catlin in 1995, before moving to Australia with GAPS in 2004.
Commenting, Robin Johnson, country manager, Australia, said: “Opening this office continues our Australasian expansion. It will allow us to get closer to our Queensland brokers and clients, to be more responsive to their needs and provide them with the service excellence that they expect from XL Catlin.”
XL Catlin’s operations in Australia date back to September 1998, when the company opened its first office in Sydney. Today, XL Catlin in Australia has over 100 employees across the three offices of Angel Place in Sydney, 500 Collins Street in Melbourne and now Riverside Centre, Brisbane.
