International General Insurance (IGI) has appointed Brian James as class underwriter for cargo.
James brings over 30 years of experience in the cargo industry, and joins from Neon Underwriting, where he was class underwriter.
Prior to this, he spent over a decade at Wellington Underwriting where he was responsible for establishing Wellington’s Syndicate Services and Wellington Genoa, following its acquisition by Catlin.
IGI said: “Reporting to Mark Trevitt, marine class underwriter, Brian will be based in IGI’s London office, and will be responsible for developing a niche portfolio of general cargo business, focusing on specific elements of the general cargo market, specifically medium-sized accounts and largely transit only, as well as cargo “war on land” risks.”
IGI is an international specialist commercial insurer and reinsurer, which underwrites a “diverse portfolio” of specialty lines. IGI was established in 2001.
