StarStone has targeted growth in its global accident and health businesses through the appointment of Jeff Herman to lead the class. Herman has joined from CV Starr, where he served as global head of accident and health (A&H). He will retain the same title at Starstone and will be based in New York but will oversee accident and health across the company’s global platforms. This includes Lloyd’s syndicate 1301. Starstone said he would work closely with the firm’s existing A&H teams in London and Brussels. Herman also brings experience from serving at Liberty Mutual and AIG and in growing A&H divisions in a variety of markets having established operations in China, Japan, South Korea, Eastern Europe and Latin America during his career. StarStone currently has a $30mn A&H book with a maximum line size of $25mn. His time at Starr saw him manage a book in the region of $70mn which shows the ambitions of StarStone to grow in the area.
