Cooper Gay, NMB Appoint Stephenson to Head Joint Reinsurance Unit

July 8, 2014

UK-based broker Cooper Gay & Co Ltd. and Newman Martin and Buchan LLP (NMB), have appointed Martin Stephenson as CEO for their combined Reinsurance business, effective immediately.

Stephenson was previously managing director of the NMB Reinsurance division. He brings over 25 years’ market experience to the role. Following the acquisition of NMB by the Cooper Gay Swett & Crawford (CGSC) Group last year, he held the position of Head of Reinsurance Production for the combined businesses.

Stephenson is based in London and reports to Gordon Newman, CEO of Cooper Gay and NMB. He takes over the role of CEO Reinsurance from Andrew Hitchings who has resigned from the company. He also joins the boards of Cooper Gay and NMB, subject to Financial Conduct Authority approval.

Newman commented: “We see great growth potential in our reinsurance business and are fortunate to have Martin’s experience and knowledge to draw on. Martin knows our clients and our business and, as a highly successful reinsurance broker, he is ideally placed to lead the integrated Cooper Gay and NMB Reinsurance team during its next chapter of growth. I would also like to thank Andrew for his service at Cooper Gay and wish him well for the future.”
