Dual, the underwriting arm of Hyperion Insurance Group, has appointed Juan Naveda, formerly of Willis, as global developer and senior underwriter.

He joins the newly combined Dual financial lines – UK, a division of Dual Corporate Risks.

In this new role, Naveda will maximise cross-selling opportunities externally and within the Dual group, and work on the development and delivery of new products.

Naveda joins Dual after 13 years at Willis, where he developed Willis Finex’s Latin America and Iberia operations, which he led from 2006 as executive director, focussing on financial and executive risk insurances including PI and D&O.

Shane Doyle, chief executive officer and group chief underwriting officer at Dual, said: “Juan is a well-respected market leader, whose teams have had continued success under his guidance and leadership. He brings with him a solid understanding of the Commercial and FL markets in a number of important territories for Dual, including Latin America and Spain. His client-focussed approach, combined with impressive retention and product development credentials, make him a great fit for our financial lines team.”
