    Appointment: Hiscox Re and ILS promoted Ross Nottingham to North America role

Hiscox has promoted Ross Nottingham to chairman of North America for Hiscox Re and ILS.

Ross joined the Hiscox Re and ILS team in Bermuda in early 2012 as an underwriter. He was also responsible for new product development and managing broker relations for Hiscox Re.

In 2014, he relocated to the UK to lead the North America team in London. Before he joined Hiscox, Mr Nottingham spent 12 years as a broker, including seven years at Aon Benfield where he worked in the non-marine retrocession team in both London and Bermuda.

As chairman of North America, Ross will lead Hiscox Re’s North American underwriting team and strategy.

With support from team colleagues in Bermuda and London, he will be responsible for building on the broker and client relationships the business has already established.

Mr Nottingham will start in his new role from September 1, 2018 and will continue to be based in London. He will report to Megan McConnell, director of underwriting — London, who alongside Adam Szakmary, director of underwriting — Bermuda, jointly lead the underwriting strategy for Hiscox Re and ILS.

Mike Krefta, Hiscox Re and ILS chief executive officer, said: “Ross’s valuable market insight and eye for innovation are exactly what we need to continue the success of our North American book.”
