Leroy Almeida has been appointed to head of the Middle East operation, which now includes marine and D&O product lines.
Abhishek Chhajer will continue to lead the trade credit operation in the Asia Pacific region.
Simon Moon takes on the role of head of risk underwriting and Carl Titterton as head of commercial underwriting for the trade credit operation.
Nicola Marriage becomes head of political risk with Damian Manning continuing as head of surety.
Philip Amlot assumes the role of head of trade credit and political risk, Americas.
Internationally, Arjan Van de Wall becomes global development director, responsible for giving brokers access to the team’s areas of expertise spanning all geographies and to drive global solutions for large multinational clients.
Ewa Rose, managing director of the division, said: “Since the launch of the business in 2010, we have expanded our geographic reach across the US, Canada, Singapore and Dubai in addition to the London presence and have added political risk and surety product lines to the trade credit operation. The new structure gives leadership responsibility to the separate business lines, while providing an overarching, multi-product business development role that can engage effectively with our brokers.”
