Claims veteran Steve Robson has joined Willis Re as head of London Market Reinsurance Claims, effective immediately. He brings extensive client-side experience and perspectives, and supports the closer alignment of the servicing and placement teams of Willis Re, the reinsurance division of Willis Towers Watson.

Robson will lead Willis Re’s claims broking team in London, reporting to Chris Brook, Willis Re’s global chief operating officer.

During his 36 years in the sector, Robson has held appointments including managing director of Standard Syndicate 1884 (September 2017 – January 2019), head of Claims at Brit (July 2012 – September 2016), claims director for Alterra at Lloyd’s (June 2004 – June 2012), according to his LinkedIn profile.

He also was president of the International Association of Claims Professionals (IACP) and held chairmanships at the London market CAT Coordination Group and its Reinsurance Claims Practitioner Group.

“We are thrilled that Steve will lead Willis Re’s ongoing effort to redefine our claims offering by bringing claims advocacy to the forefront of our business,” said Brook.

“Steve’s extensive experience as an inwards and outwards claims director for several prominent risk carriers, as well as the senior industry roles he has held in the re/insurance market has given him a broad and invaluable perspective on claims, and a deep understanding of the depth of service and future positioning that Willis Re aims to deliver to our clients,” he added.
