Shepherd Compello hires THB exec to focus on US flood market
Specialist insurance broker Shepherd Compello has appointed Simon Irving as a producing broker and in-house underwriter.
Irving, who joins the firm from specialist re/insurance group THB, will specialise in flood, mortgage impairment, forced placed/REO, and homeowners and commercial insurance.
Irving will help the firm increase its presence in the North American flood market.
Mel Alexander, director of Shepherd Compello said: “I am delighted that Simon has joined the team. He is acknowledged as a leader in the flood market developing products and markets. His expertise will help us drive forward to develop new markets and opportunities.”
Irving added: “I am excited to be joining Shepherd Compello because they offer clients another option, one which is independent and suited to them. There are many firms who can provide a mass market approach, but many clients tell me they want a one-to-one service.
“Shepherd Compello does just that and I am looking forward to that personal level of client service.”
