Dermot O’Donohoe, chief executive officer of Hamilton Underwriting, said: “With Lloyd’s’ approval to add excess casualty to our portfolio in 2018, it’s great to have the benefit of Bob’s significant experience and expertise as we enter this class of business.
“Bob will be working with Hamilton Re chief underwriting officer casualty insurance, Steve Hartwig, and his team to source business in the London market. Steve and Bob’s outreach will be complementary, underwriting to a maximum capacity of $25 million in London and $50 million in Bermuda.
“With an expected improvement in rates, terms and conditions, it’s timely for Bob to join us as Hamilton expands its leadership in this market segment.”
