  • Publish Date: Posted over 7 years ago

Towergate has unveiled the creation of a London underwriting centre. The centre, headed by David Leathem as London director of underwriting, will work on creating and developing specialist London market product lines providing a unique opportunity for the best underwriting capability. Leathem joins the centre from The Channel Syndicate, where he was a founding partner. He will establish a direct and facultative international property unit, which will operate alongside the casualty and liability operation following the appointments of John Marshall and Glenn Murphy, with further lines to be added. CEO of underwriting at Towergate, Adrian Brown said, “The creation of a London Underwriting Centre represents a genuine opportunity for us to build a leading position in the market, one which our broking customers are telling us is increasingly crucial to their own businesses. David is the first choice candidate to lead this charge and brings unrivalled market experience to the table.” CEO David Ross mirrors Brown’s positivity for the appointment describing Leathem as “one of the most charismatic and formidable traders of his generation.”
