Aston Lark has announced the appointment of Robert Beere as director of Lloyd’s Broker, Incepta.
Beere is a Lloyd’s and London Market broker specialising in property and package business.
He joins Aston Lark from JLT/Marsh, where he has spent the past 15 years of his career, most recently as regional director for London Market Risks. Prior to that, he spent four years as a property insurance broker for Aon.
Current Incepta directors Paul Smith and Clive Gilbert will be exiting the business in the summer. Beeree will work alongside James Hancock and will be tasked with “driving” the group’s London market property and casualty business forward.
Acquired by the Aston Lark Group in August 2020, Incepta is an established Lloyd’s wholesale broker which operates a number of underwriting binders in both property and liability.
Stuart Rootham, managing director at Aston Lark, said: “We are excited for Rob to be joining the Incepta team in November. As part of our overall growth vision, Aston Lark has significant ambitions for our London market capability.
“It’s an important pillar of our offering and we will continue to hire experienced talent and seek further acquisitions to build on the expertise and strength already provided by Incepta, Brunel Professions and Protean Risks.”
