Insurance group Miller has announced the hiring of two professional indemnity specialists, Paddy Synnott and Joe Newbury, as part of its continued expansion into the UK Professions market.
The group’s UK Professions team specialises in arranging a broad spectrum of cover to suit the specific requirements of insureds, including identifying cost-effective professional indemnity insurance for a range of sectors including solicitors, insurance firms and surveyors.
According to Miller, Synnot and Newbury’s understanding of the UK Professions market and professional indemnity business will strengthen the team’s commitment to delivering “market-leading, innovative” risk transfer solutions.
Synnot began his insurance career as a professional indemnity underwriter in 2014, before switching to broking in 2016. During his career in insurance, he has worked primarily in UK PI, also gaining exposure to global accounts in the Legal, Construction and Insurance Professionals sectors.
Newbury began his insurance career in 2015, and has since worked extensively with Construction PI clients in London and the South East.
Ed Pickard, head of UK Professions, said: “We are delighted that Paddy and Joe have joined Miller. Their strong knowledge of the UK Professional Indemnity market will strengthen our team’s capabilities and our ability to offer clients tailored solutions.
“In the current hard market, clients need to be able to rely on their brokers to support them – these new hires respond to that and confirm Miller’s ongoing commitment to excellent client service.”
