ACE Group announced that James Langdon, Lloyd’s market manager for energy within ACE Global Markets, has been promoted to the new role of global head of upstream energy as the company continues to build its presence across the world’s energy insurance markets.

In his new role, Langdon will be responsible for the development of ACE’s upstream energy retail insurance portfolio across the company’s international network and he will continue to manage and build ACE’s book of London-based wholesale business.

Langdon will remain based in London, reporting to Matthew Hardy, senior vice president and global head of energy for ACE’s international division, while working closely with regional underwriting managers and risk engineers across the company’s global energy team to identify and execute new business opportunities. His appointment is effective immediately.

Langdon joined ACE 12 years ago in London as an underwriting assistant within the energy team and has steadily progressed his career through various roles, most recently serving as Lloyd’s market manager for energy, where he led the expansion of the portfolio over the past two years.

Matthew Hardy, senior vice president and global head of energy for ACE’s international division, said:

“This newly created role reflects the growing demand we are seeing from clients in the upstream energy sector for high-quality insurance and risk management solutions. It also underlines ACE’s commitment to meeting evolving customer needs both through the London wholesale market and by increasing our presence within the growing regional energy markets.
