I am the Divisional Head of Aerospace and Specialty at Hiscox. I have worked in the Aviation insurance industry since 1984 and I have had a diverse career over the years including extensive travel and a four year migration to Bermuda. I built up my underwriting career at various insurers including Eagle Star, British Aviation Insurance Group, ACE and Faraday. Following these positions I came to Hiscox in 2010 to establish the Aviation team. In addition I have continued my extensive involvement with the LMA and the CII. My responsibilities as Divisional Head extend beyond Aviation to include, Space, Special Risks, Contingency, Personal Accident, and Terrorism. I hold the ACII accreditation and have been a key contributor to Hiscox achieving Chartered Insurer status. I have learnt it is relationships, innovation and differentiation which can set you apart from the competition, especially where the commercial and technological landscape is changing so quickly.
