StarStone hires XL Catlin's O’Malley as new head of cargo

StarStone, the specialty insurer and subsidiary of Enstar Group, has appointed Rod O’Malley as head of cargo in London. He will report to global head of marine Simon Schnorr.

StarStone’s current London cargo underwriter Henry Wood has been promoted to senior underwriter and will work closely with O’Malley to expand StarStone’s cargo book.

O’Malley joins from XL Catlin, where he most recently served as head of the UK cargo team and senior class underwriter. He has more than 35 years of experience as a marine cargo underwriter, having worked in both the Lloyd’s and company markets in London.

"Rod joins us to build on StarStone’s strong existing cargo foundations in London," said Schnorr. "His considerable experience and market standing will help further fortify StarStone’s cargo offering and ensure our continued success in developing new opportunities, both in London and globally."
