Mike Patchett, John Spenceley and Ben Warren promoted to new roles
9th May 2016
We are delighted to announce extended roles for three key members of our team.
Mike Patchett is promoted to Head of Specialty.
Mike was a founding member of the syndicate’s underwriting team, transferring the Just MGA products of Motorsport, Equestrian and Leisure into the syndicate’s portfolio in 2013. With the addition of accident and health in 2015, the specialty division now has 12 coverholders and Mike leads the underwriting through the syndicate’s service company. This promotion recognises Mike’s contribution to the syndicate and the planned development of the specialty account, in terms of lines of business written, territorial expansion and a growing coverholder base.
John Spenceley is promoted to Head of UK and International.
John joined the syndicate in its first year of trading, in September 2013, as Class Underwriter UK and International. John has led the appointment of coverholders in the UK, Ireland, Australasia and the Middle East and currently has partnerships with 24 coverholders in these territories. John has been instrumental in establishing the syndicate’s non-US operations and this promotion recognises that contribution and the continued expansion in the scope of his responsibilities.
Ben Warren is promoted to Class Underwriter, UK and International.
Ben joined the syndicate as Deputy Class Underwriter, International in August 2014 from OIM where he was Head of Liability. Since joining he has been instrumental in developing our coverholders in Australia, New Zealand and the Middle East, as well as introducing and signing a number of new UK coverholders. This promotion recognises Ben’s leadership within the account and his appointment will support John Spenceley in the ongoing development of the UK and International account.
We hope you will join us in congratulating Mike, John and Ben in their new roles.
