Beazley has appointed Andreas Bergler as head of broker relations for Continental Europe to support the company's expansion plans spanning the region.
In the newly designed role, Bergler will focus on building out Beazley's pan-European broker relationship network and distribution strategy.
He will report to head of broker relations UK & Europe, Will Roscoe.
Bergler joined Beazley in 2008 and has successfully led the treaty team in Munich as well as playing a major role in developing Beazley's presence in Germany. He started his career at Munich Re prior to moving to New Re and then Aon Benfield.
Roscoe said: "European growth is a strategic priority for us, particularly for our international specialty lines business. Andreas' appointment will allow us to develop new relationships with brokers and build on existing ones as we continue to expand our offering in the region."
