Barbican lures Faraday Syndicate exec

Barbican Insurance has appointed John Sawyer as underwriter to lead property binders within the firm’s international property division.

He will report to David Slade, underwriting manager, international property.

Most recently, Sawyer was a property binding authority underwriter at Faraday Syndicate 435, having originally joined the firm in November 2003. Other roles have included: broker/underwriter at MD Jensvold and underwriter for property/casualty binding authority business at Sphere Drake (Odyssey Re). He began his insurance career at JL Dodson Syndicate 660 in 1985.

Slade said: “The international property sector is a highly competitive and specialist environment, which demands the highest standards of underwriting expertise. Bringing John into the team – someone with such a considerable breadth and depth of market experience – is a very positive development, and we look forward to capitalising on his insight to further strengthen our position.”

Sawyer added: “I am very pleased to be joining Barbican at such an exciting stage in their development. The company has a very clear strategic vision combined with an agility and willingness to innovate. I look forward to playing my part in building on the strong foundations that David and the rest of the property team have put in place.”
