General Insurance Article - AEGIS promotes two and segments non-marine property book

 AEGIS London has made two key promotions within its non-marine property team. Gemma Rothon has been promoted to Class Underwriter – Facilities, while Toby Sawyer has been promoted to Class Underwriter – Open Market. Both were previously underwriters.

 Both take up their new roles immediately and will report to Alex Powell, AEGIS London’s Head of Property, who has recently been appointed to the board of AEGIS Managing Agency Limited.

 Gemma Rothon has been a member of the AEGIS London non-marine property team for 12 years and spent three years prior to that at Janson Green/Limit. Gemma has led the AEGIS London property team’s Canadian account and, in addition, chairs the syndicate’s Canadian strategy committee. Gemma has also developed a strong reputation for underwriting mid-market business.

 Toby Sawyer has 10 years’ experience in the London insurance market. He began his career with Hardy Underwriting, before moving to Novae and then to AEGIS London four years ago. Toby underwrites all aspects of the property portfolio with a particular focus on the global facultative account. He is an acknowledged specialist in international property underwriting and the mining sector.

 David Croom-Johnson, Active Underwriter for AEGIS London, said: "The non-marine property account has been highly successful for us and has achieved significant growth over the last few years.

 “As a result, we have taken the decision to split the account to ensure we continue to deliver the best possible service to our brokers, coverholders and clients, and to create a platform for future development of the account. Promoting Gemma and Toby is a key part of this change.”
