Blenheim, managed by Asta, has appointed John Cutts to develop a specialty reinsurance division within its Syndicate 5886 at Lloyd's.
Cutts will take up his role in 2018 upon concluding his existing responsibilities at Talbot Underwriting, where he has worked for the past 17 years, serving as head of treaty underwriting for Syndicate 1183 for more than a decade.
John Lynch, managing director of Blenheim, said: "The launch of our specialty reinsurance division marks an important next step in Blenheim’s evolution, as we continue down the path to building the high quality independent business that we set out to our capital providers.
"John is a recognised leader in the specialty reinsurance market and comes to Blenheim with a long standing profitable track record and wealth of market leading expertise. Through the addition of John we will expand our capabilities to be able to offer reliable and consistent lead expertise across the majority of short tail reinsurance business lines, throughout the trading cycle."
Blenheim syndicate 5886 commenced underwriting in January 2017.
