Despite the pandemic, the team at Lion Underwriting has seen considerable growth in the last 12 months. We are incredibly proud of the team culture we have built across the years and the support we have offered to our clients particularly during these challenging times.
In line with the goals and values we hold ourselves accountable to, Lion Underwriting has seen the need to expand the team. In 2021, we have seen two new additions. David Hoffman joined us in April as Head of Marine and in May we welcomed Adam Thackeray as Senior Property Underwriter.
With over two decades of marine insurance experience, David brings along a wealth of knowledge backed by numerous industry qualifications including a graduate certificate in Maritime Logistics & Management as well as a Chartering Certificate from Lloyd’s Maritime Academy.
On the other hand, Adam has more than 30 years of experience in the insurance industry with both local underwriters and underwriting agencies including Genesis Underwriting, Mobius Underwriting (SLE Group) and Miramar Underwriting to name a few.
We look forward to seeing the innovation and continued level of excellence our two hires will bring. Both gents will be underwriting some complex risks in their respective classes, as well as expanding the Lion brand and its capabilities across the intermediary network nationally.
Managing Director, Kurt Nilsen, said “its great having these two experienced, well connected & respected underwriters join the pride. We continue to strengthen our team with a focus on providing a high level of service & solutions to our valued brokers”.
