Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Opens Munich Office; Names Key Underwriters

September 18, 2018

Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance (BHSI) has opened a new office in Munich, Germany, the latest advance in BHSI’s expansion of its global footprint. The insurer has named two key underwriters for the office.

The new office in Munich, along with the BHSI office in Dusseldorf, will underwrite property, casualty, medical malpractice, marine and executive and professional lines for business segments in Germany.

BHSI said that it intends to build local underwriting and claims capabilities in the new office. It has filled its first two posts in Munich with Lars Messutat, senior underwriter, Property, and Florian Biebrach, senior underwriter, Financial Lines, both of whom relocated from BHSI in Dusseldorf.

“Our new presence in southeastern Germany enhances our ability to bring our full line of specialty insurance products, our financial strength, and our focus on service excellence to the German and European marketplace,” said Chris Colahan, president, BHSI in Europe and the UK.
