Hamilton Insurance Group has announced the appointment of Vanessa Young as head of mergers and acquisitions (M&A) insurance across its global operations.
Young joined Hamilton last month and is based in London. She reports to Miles Osorio, active underwriter of Lloyd’s Syndicate 4000.
She brings 20 years’ technical and industry experience to her new role. She joins Hamilton from Willis Towers Watson (WTW), where she was executive director for their transactional risks unit in London and led the establishment of a client-focused, technical, and risk-based approach to M&A broking projects.
Prior to WTW, Young was a senior underwriter/solicitor at Neon Underwriting, where she worked on numerous UK and international transactions with a “focus on the renewable energy and real estate sectors”.
Adrian Daws, CEO of Hamilton’s managing agency, said: “A solicitor and accomplished insurance leader, Vanessa has responsibility for Hamilton’s M&A book of business. Her significant market knowledge, together with her proven underwriting skills and track record, will be pivotal in overseeing the immediate further buildout of our global business.”
