Lonmar Professions, a financial lines specialist and part of Lonmar, has appointed financial lines broker Sean Trent as its new divisional director.
Trent, who joins Lonmar from Gallagher, commenced his role this month, and will now work alongside Lonmar Professions managing director Alan Newall and his team.
Lonmar Professions specialises in providing PI cover for a wide range of professions and trades, from accountants to surveyors. It also offers risk placement facilities for regional UK brokers via its parent GRP, and through Hedron Networks, which was recently acquired by GRP from Marsh UK.
Commenting on its latest appointment, Newall said: “Sean’s appointment underlines our commitment to grow both the retail and wholesale business for professional indemnity, cyber, management liability, medical malpractice and connected areas.
“In the current challenging market there are nevertheless good opportunities for growth if we adopt the right approach. Sean brings a huge amount of experience and some excellent market and retail connections with him and he adds significantly to the bench strength of our team.”
Trent added: “It’s great to be working with Alan and his team, who I already know well through some previous market placements.
“My primary focus will be on the retail side, and I’m really looking forward to working with such a well-regarded and experienced unit and playing my part in delivering our ambitious growth plans.”
