Richard Brindle, chairman and group chief executive officer of Fidelis, said: “Fidelis sets great value on its reinsurance relationships and this appointment is a demonstration of our commitment to provide best in class service and transparency to our partners.”
Mr Symms said: “I understand Fidelis devotes extensive resources to provide cutting edge tools for outwards analysis and reporting and I’m looking forward to utilising the tools to provide market leading information to our partners.”
Phil Vandoninck noted: “Fidelis has a large number of reinsurance partners over 20 classes of business. This requires us to focus resources on the entire outwards process from broker and counterparty selection to placement and reporting.
“John’s extensive experience and relationships can only help us to develop further and offer a better service to our reinsurers.”
