Arcus hires ex-Munich Re and Lloyd's exec as syndicate manager

Arcus Syndicate 1856, part of Barbican Insurance Group, has appointed Gary Delaney as syndicate manager with immediate effect.

Most recently Delaney was a class of business deputy executive at Lloyd's, where he worked with the underwriting performance department and performance management directorate (PMD). He joined Lloyd's in 2008 as an analyst within PMD's business intelligence division. Prior to that, he worked as a claims/data analyst at Munich Re.

In his new role, Delaney will support active underwriter Nicky Payne in running all aspects of the syndicate's underwriting operations. He will report to head of Arcus Syndicate Rajiv Punja.

Punja said: "This is a key appointment for Arcus 1856. Gary's extensive underwriting insight spanning all lines of business at Lloyd's, coupled with his detailed understanding of critical market functions and trends makes him an important addition to our team.

"At Arcus 1856, we combine the financial strength of Lloyd’s and the innovation and experience of the capital markets. This has enabled us to build strong market momentum and we will continue to bolster our team at all levels to ensure we maintain that momentum."
