DUAL Appoints Watson as Chief Claims Officer

July 7, 2015

DUAL, the specialist underwriting arm of the Hyperion Insurance Group, announced it has appointed Angus Watson as global chief claims officer, joining September 1, 2015.

Watson will join from Arch Insurance Company (Europe) Limited where he was head of claims and senior vice president. He has more than 20 years’ experience in the insurance industry which he joined after a career in the Metropolitan Police. Before joining Arch, Watson was head of claims for Hiscox Insurance Company, responsible for managing the insurance company’s claims function including all UK and European offices.

Shane Doyle, DUAL CEO, commented that Watson “brings a wealth of top level claims experience to our business and his appointment reinforces DUAL’s commitment to excellence in our claims service. Arch and DUAL have a relationship spanning many years, which means Angus has a strong understanding of our business and its customers.”

Arch has provided capacity to DUAL for over 10 years and supports the group’s current worldwide quota share binder.

Watson said: “This is a new role for DUAL and timely given that the group is approaching $1 billion GWP [gross written premiums]. I look forward to helping take the group’s claims proposition to the next level, offering industry-leading standards of responsiveness and service.”
