MGA Aqueous Underwriting has appointed Alex Stephenson as its new senior underwriter.
Stephenson joins the firm having spent 10 years at Manchester Underwriting. He has previously worked at RSA and at broker Millers, and joins with immediate effect.
Aqueous currently writes PI for a wide range of trades and professions. The appointment bolsters Aqueous’ professional indemnity team as it looks to grow its book and footprint within the UK market.
The chief underwriter, Mark Ford said: “Being able to bring someone of Alex’s market knowledge and experience into the Aqueous underwriting team is a sign of our commitment to realising the growth ambitions we have in the professional indemnity sector. His expertise in writing PI across a broad range of professions really adds to the strength in depth we are developing.
“We have some ambitious growth plans, and together with the continued support of our capacity providers, I have little doubt we’ll be able to achieve them.”
Stephenson added: “I’m looking forward to meeting the team face to face soon, and being able to bring my experience to the fore. I recognise the positive direction the business is going in and I’m looking forward to playing my part as it grows.”
