Besso Re has appointed Dave Merry as head of operations.
Merry has around 35 years’ experience as a broker in the London and international wholesale insurance markets. He said he joined the firm in 2018 to “explore strategic growth and development opportunities” for the Besso group.
He will work alongside divisional director Ross Beeden, operations manager Andrew Coleman as well as divisional directors Nikki Melbourn, Rob Pound, Simon Richardson and executive director Jason Savage.
David Merry said: “Facultative reinsurance is an area where we can bring additional value to our clients, complementing our wholesale offering and working across Besso teams to provide cogent solutions for our clients in a challenging market.
“We know that there is keen client demand for brokers offering an independent view combined with relevant scale and that is exactly what we provide without the constriction of organisational silos.”
He added: “It is encouraging to see our approach attracting talented individuals who share our straightforward view of how to extract maximum performance across Besso Re to the benefit of our clients.”
