Acrisure Re, the insurance broking and capital risk advisory firm with an office in Bermuda, has launched a Florida operation with the appointment of Craig Darling as EVP and Office Head.

The company said Mr Darling is based in Melbourne, Florida and will report to Acrisure Re CEO, Simon Hedley.

Mr Darling will manage both property and casualty lines of business in Florida as well as other areas of the southeastern United States, and will also join Acrisure Re’s North American executive team.

Mr Hedley said: “We are delighted to have a market expert of Craig’s calibre join the Acrisure Re team as we continue to expand our offering in the US. His creative and entrepreneurial broking skills, combined with his continued success of creating new business opportunities, will be an excellent asset to our business.”

Mr Darling said: “Over the last few years, Acrisure Re has become a force in the US market. The team’s relentless focus, sophisticated expertise and tech-driven analytics make it the perfect place for me to continue my career.

“By establishing a dedicated branch office, Acrisure Re has demonstrated a long-term commitment to the Florida and US southeast marketplace.”

Mr Darling joins Acrisure Re from Guy Carpenter where he was managing director working closely with Tampa, Florida and New York City home office. He has more than 30 years of underwriting and reinsurance broking experience across multiple lines of business.
