London-based Hyperion Insurance Group, an international insurance intermediary, has confirmed the permanent appointment of Talbir Bains as chief executive officer of DUAL Group, an MGA and Hyperion’s international underwriting arm.
The vision of DUAL is to continue to grow and develop in a strongly team-oriented environment with an even greater emphasis on high quality underwriting and operational excellence in order to deliver the very best service to capacity providers, brokers and clients.
After an externally conducted executive review led by Clem Booth, non-executive chairman of DUAL Group, the DUAL board has confirmed that Bains, who recently finalized capacity for the $300 million GWP Financial Lines section of DUAL’s new international treaty structure, should be appointed to the role on a permanent basis.
Bains joined DUAL in April 2015 as chief underwriting officer. He took on the role of CEO of the group in an interim capacity in October 2015. Prior to joining DUAL he held a number of senior leadership roles at QBE.
