Sportscover strengthens London underwriting team


Sportscover Europe has broadened the experience within its London underwriting team by appointing Simon Bowring and Gary Pigot as senior underwriters.

Bowring joins as senior development underwriter. He was previously with Towergate Entertainment, where he was the head of the new business unit. He takes up the new appointment from 26 August 2014.

Pigot, who started with Sportscover Europe last week as senior underwriter, specialises in accident and health insurance and property and casualty insurance. He has previously worked at BUPA and Miles Smith.

Chris Hootton, who has been with Sportscover since 2009, is also promoted to the position of underwriter.

Matthew Riley, Sportscover’s London chief executive officer, said: “We are delighted to welcome Simon and Gary to Sportscover. We have been looking for the right underwriters to continue to grow our business into the future and both bring the skills and experience we need to manage the increase in business that we are seeing.

“I also want to congratulate Chris Hootton on a well-deserved promotion. He has demonstrated an ability to understand and develop the underwriting of our business far beyond his years.”
