Liberty Specialty Markets create new European Terrorism role
Liberty Specialty Markets has promoted Joanna Hitchcock to the newly-created role of Paris-based Terrorism Underwriter...
The move is part of LSM’s plan to grow its European Terrorism account. Although based in Paris, Hitchcock will circulate among LSM’s European offices, meeting brokers and attending industry events.
Paul Beattie, LSM’s Underwriting Manager – War & Terrorism, said: “We’ve been writing Terrorism very successfully for many years from London, but have been experiencing increasing demand from Europe. With our plans to grow our European business, this was the right time to create a new role based in Paris to service that demand and build stronger relations across the continent.
“Joanna has been with us for approaching four years and has made a very positive impact on our business. Her knowledge and expertise will be a considerable asset to our European business.”
Hitchcock, formerly Assistant Underwriter for Terrorism in London, joined LSM’s graduate programme in 2014 after she left Durham University with a degree in Molecular Biology and Biochemistry. She has been quoting on business referred by LSM’s European offices for the past year.
