Cobra London Market has appointed Chris Cullen to head up its casualty division.
With over 30 years’ experience within the insurance industry, Cullen joins from Tokio Marine Kiln, where he was head of UK Liability responsible for both company and Lloyds platforms.
Prior to Tokio Marine Kiln, Cullen has held various roles with companies such as QBE, ACE, Norwich Union and London and Edinburgh.
Cullen will lead the team into a new phase of development and growth. The firm said his experience as an underwriter will be “invaluable” particularly in the current market conditions where rates are increasing and capacity is reducing.
Cullen said: “We have come a long way since insurance was submitted via proposal forms in the post and paid for by a cheque.
“I am looking forward to being part of a new team, turning my hand to Insurance broking and working with people I have known for many years. Providing exceptional service and maintaining client relationships are key to a successful broking business.”
Andrew Walsh, managing director at Citynet and Cobra London Markets, added: “Bringing Chris into the team, once again reinforces the businesses commitment to invest in quality individuals whose talents will immediately strengthen our proposition to market and be of major benefit to our clients.”
