Brit bolsters cyber and tech unit with Nationwide hire

Specialty re/insurer Brit has appointed Courtney Mocio as vice president, cyber and technology at its US unit, Brit Global Specialty USA (BGSU).

Mocio joins BGSU from Nationwide Insurance Company where she spent the last five years writing a book of cyber, technology and professional business. Prior to that, she held the position of executive underwriter at Hartford Financial Products where she underwrote cyber, management liability and E&O business.

In her new role, Mocio will be responsible for helping to develop and grow Brit’s cyber and technology portfolio in the US. She will be based in BSGU’s New York City office and report to Michael Carr, senior vice president for cyber.

Nick Davies, president of Brit Americas, commented: "We are delighted to welcome Courtney to Brit as we look to build and strengthen our Cyber & Technology offering in the US. Courtney brings with her both excellent technical knowledge and a number of strong relationships within the broking community, which will be invaluable as we grow our existing distribution network."

Matthew Wilson, CEO of Brit, added: "This is the latest in a series of excellent hires made by BGSU this year, as we continue to expand our US offering in sustainable and profitable lines where we can leverage our disciplined underwriting approach. Brit is at the forefront of innovation in the Cyber insurance sector and we are excited to welcome Courtney as we continue to expand our portfolio."
