Mitsui Sumitomo at Lloyd’s has affirmed its commitment to grow its Marine Liability business with the appointment of Simon Engelen as Class Underwriter.
Engelen will join Mitsui Sumitomo at Lloyd’s later this year when he leaves his current role as Marine & Energy Liability Class Underwriter with W. R. Berkley Syndicate 1967. He has over 11 years’ Marine Liability underwriting experience, including roles with QBE Energy & Marine Syndicate 1036 and Navigators Underwriting Agency Millennium Syndicate 1221.
Since the launch of its Marine Liability account in 2012, Mitsui Sumitomo at Lloyd’s has established a broad based account built on experienced underwriting, backed up a responsive service for brokers. This combination has not only secured a worldwide client base but also a solid underwriting performance.
Commenting on Engelen’s appointment and the company’s commitment to the sector, Peter McDermott, Active Underwriter and Head of Marine & Aviation, said: “The launch of our Marine Liability account last year was an important development in establishing our position as a full service marine provider. Simon’s appointment is further evidence of our commitment to growing our presence in this key sector of the marine market.”
