RKH Specialty, the London-headquartered wholesale insurance and reinsurance broker, announced the appointment of 14 new senior Aviation experts in London and Colombia, as part of RKH’s wider plan of building the largest independent logistics team incorporating its resources across aviation, cargo and marine.

New hires in London are:

  • Alex Robinson – divisional director

  • Marcio Rosset – divisional director
  • David Clewley – associate director
  • Karen Korkmaz – associate director
  • Michael Dumenil – associate director
  • David Bowers – senior account executive
  • Ross Millar – account executive (joining on July 6, 2020)
  • Simon Smith – divisional director, (joining in December 2020)

In Colombia, Alejandro Ramirez Gomez and Maria Claudia Forero Mendoza join as joint LatAm head of Aviation, along with account executives, Nayibe Galvis and Alexandra Bernal. Based in Bogota, the Colombia team will work closely with RKH’s London team as well as RKH’s network of international hub offices.

Led by recently appointed global head of Aviation, Jason Humphreys, who joined RKH in February 2020, the newly expanded team will focus on developing bespoke products for the company’s growing portfolio of general aviation, aerospace and airline clients.

“The aviation market has seen seismic shifts over the last 24 months but with our newly expanded team, we are now positioned perfectly to take advantage of global opportunities in the aviation sector,” commented Humphreys.

“Seeking out and attracting the very best talent to join our already strong team is a key strategy for us and these hires represent a great leap forward for RKH. By October 2020, we will have gone from a seven-person team in London to a team of 21, with dedicated aviation hubs in two continents,” he continued.

“Tough market conditions stimulate innovation and we intend to be at the forefront of those changes, maximizing our expertise and service levels across our international hub offices,” said Darren Norris, managing director of RKH Specialty’s Logistics division.

“By accessing all of the world’s markets through one united team of experts, we can provide the best service and marketing expertise for our clients,” he added.
