Beazley hires Guy Carpenter exec to head US marine business
Specialist insurer Beazley has appointed former Guy Carpenter executive Stephen Vivian to lead its US marine business.
Vivian most recently served as a managing director responsible for new business production and marketing for Guy Carpenter in New York. He has over 30 years of experience as a marine re/insurance broker.
In his new role as head of US marine at Beazley, Vivian will be based at the company’s New York office and report to the head of marine Clive Washbourn.
Washbourn said: "Steve’s decades of experience in handling all aspects of marine risks in the US market will help Beazley build local distribution and access risks that don’t typically reach the London market.
"Beazley’s established underwriting and claims teams work together to provide brokers and their clients with specialized coverage for their marine risks."
Vivian added: "I am delighted to be joining Beazley. We have a great opportunity in the US to build on Beazley’s extensive and respected marine business in the London Market. I look forward to leveraging our team’s expertise and developing a specialized book of marine business in the US."
