Willis Re, the global (re)insurance division of broker Willis Towers Watson, has appointed Steve Robson as head of London market reinsurance claims, effective from 25 March 2019.
Claims veteran Robson has 36 years’ experience in the sector and brings impressive client-side knowledge to the role supporting the closer alignment of the servicing teams.
Prior to joining Willis Re, Robson has held several positions including head of claims at Brit, managing director of Syndicate 1884, president of the International Association of Claims Professionals (IACP), and chairmanships at the London Market CAT Coordination Group, and its Reinsurance Claims Practitioner Group. In his new role he will be leading the claims broking team in London and will report into Chris Brook, Willis Re’s global chief operating officer (COO).
Brook, commented: “We are thrilled that Steve will lead Willis Re’s ongoing effort to redefine our claims offering by bringing claims advocacy to the forefront of our business. Steve’s extensive experience as an inwards and outwards claims director for several prominent risk carriers, as well as the senior industry roles he has held in the (re)insurance market has given him a broad and invaluable perspective on claims, and a deep understanding of the depth of service and future positioning that Willis Re aims to deliver to our clients.”
