This award is given to an individual who has shown career-long commitment to the London market by going above and beyond their day-to-day role and responsibilities.


Andrew Horton, CEO, Beazley commented: “We are delighted that Neil’s significant contribution to the London market has been recognised by this award. He is a very worthy winner. For the past 34 years, Neil has delivered exceptional service including his participation on the board of the Lloyd’s Market Association (LMA), which he currently chairs, and his role on the Council of Lloyd’s.


“Although he will be retiring from Beazley at the end of the year, we are delighted that Neil will continue to have an influence on the London market in his new position on the Lloyd’s board, from February 2019.”


Neil Maidment is currently CUO and active underwriter for the six Lloyd’s syndicates managed by Beazley. His career in the London market spans 34 years, 28 of which have been at Beazley. In 2011, he was elected to the board of the LMA, representing the interests of the Lloyd’s underwriting community. In 2015, he was appointed LMA chairman, and in 2016 he was elected to the Council of Lloyd’s, a post from which he will step down in January 2019.
