The UK’s BMS Group, an independent global broker, has announced the opening of its Sydney office, which it said “marks another significant strategic goal for the group, with its first office in the Asia-Pacific region.”
The office will be led by respected Australia-based facultative broker, Glenn Kerr, formerly of Aon Benfield. He joins the BMS Wholesale team led by Chief Executive Nick Cook, and is charged with “leading the continued growth of BMS’ wholesale and facultative business in the Asia-Pacific region,” said the announcement.
Cook commented: “The opening of our Sydney office demonstrates BMS’ commitment to expanding the global wholesale division and further enhances our product offering to our clients. Strategically Asia Pacific is fundamental to our growth plan and under Glenn’s leadership we look forward to building our platform in the region.”
The BMS Group was founded in 1980. As described on its web site, it is a private, employee-owned independent (re)insurance intermediary, “built around teams of experts in the fields of reinsurance, wholesale and direct insurance, and two MGA subsidiary businesses.”
