Specialist insurer Beazley has made four new appointments within its Chicago-based cyber & executive risk (CyEx) division. Jon Perry and Megan Feyereisen join as executive risk underwriters, while Brett Kreiter and Rich Michaels will underwrite cyber and technology errors & omissions (E&O).

Jon joins Beazley from Allied World where he spent more than six years as a public D&O underwriter in the Midwest. Prior to that, he was an executive risk underwriter at Travelers.

Megan comes to Beazley from Hiscox where she led the Midwest cyber & executive risk team of underwriters. She previously spent more than four years at Chubb underwriting private and non-profit accounts of varying sizes.

Brett joins Beazley as a seasoned cyber and E&O underwriter. He will also serve as regional manager and leader of Beazley’s Midwest team to expand the company’s regional footprint. He joins from Zurich where he held various roles including underwriter for large accounts and head of the US middle market.

Rich comes to Beazley from Allianz where he was the lead cyber and E&O underwriter for the Midwest and South. Before Allianz, he gained a strong technical foundation from his time on Marsh’s graduate training program, specializing in casualty and financial and professional liability.

Bethany Greenwood, head of cyber & executive risk at Beazley, said: “We have an incredible team and we’re excited to continue building this strong division, and particularly to build out our offering in the Midwest with these appointments. Jon, Megan, Brett and Rich bring significant underwriting and leadership expertise and experience,

which will be beneficial as we continue to grow and serve new and existing brokers and clients.”
