Markel Names Glisson as Global Insurance President

November 25, 2014

Markel Corp. said that Britt Glisson has been appointed president of the Global Insurance division.

Markel Global was formed following the acquisition of Alterra Capital Holdings by Markel in May 2013. The Markel Global team underwrites marine, professional liability, property, and excess casualty products from offices in Bermuda, New York, Dublin, London, Atlanta, San Francisco, Chicago, and Dallas. Markel Global also includes U.S.-based practice groups.

Glisson joined Markel in 1990 and continues to serve as corporate chief administrative officer (CAO), a position he has held since 2009. Most recently, he took on an assignment in the Bermuda office to support the integration of Markel and Alterra.

Previously, Glisson served as CFO, COO, and then president of Essex Insurance Co. In 1996, he was named president of Markel Insurance Co. and continued in that post until his promotion to CAO.

In his new role, Glisson will report to Mike Crowley, Markel Corp.’s president and co-chief operating officer. He remains responsible for Markel’s ceded reinsurance administration team.
