Gallagher expands aerospace practice with hire from large airline
Global insurance broker Gallagher has bolstered its aerospace practice with a senior recruit from Etihad, who has previously worked with Generali and Aon.
Martin Rossiter has been appointed as partner in the company's aerospace practice. He will be focused on the further evolution of Gallagher’s industry value proposition and support clients with their wider risk management needs.
Rossiter has over 35 years of experience in aviation risk spanning both insurance market and industry roles. He joins Gallagher from Etihad where he spent the last five years as head of group insurable risk management delivering solutions and services to protect Ethiad’s assets, liabilities and human capital in line with corporate strategy.
Prior to Ethiad, Rossiter was head of aviation underwriting and industry proposition for Generali Global Corporate & Commercial, following senior broking and consulting roles at Aon and Sedgwick.
Rossiter said: “I’m thrilled to be joining Gallagher’s aerospace practice. I was attracted to the role as the team has a strong reputation for client excellence and market innovation. With Gallagher’s growing portfolio of aviation industry customers I believe my experience will be highly relevant. I’m very excited by this opportunity to develop and deliver enhanced services and value to so many signature clients.”
Peter Elson, CEO of Gallagher’s aerospace practice, added: “We’re delighted Martin chose to join us here at Gallagher. He brings with him an in-depth understanding of current and emerging risks faced by aerospace organisations and the latest products, tools and techniques available to manage those risks. I’m confident the clients that Martin will work with will greatly benefit from his knowledge and experience.
“This new hire is part of our ongoing commitment to providing the very best technical subject matter expertise to our clients.”
