Ed has appointed Ian Wicks as chairman of non-marine reinsurance as it looks to bolster its reinsurance division, the wholesale and speciality broker has announced.
Wicks joins from Willis Re, where he was an executive director within the reinsurance broker’s casualty division. Prior to that, he served two decades at Harman Wicks & Swayne, the reinsurance broking house he co-founded in 1988.
Following JLT’s acquisition of Harman Wicks & Swayne in 2008, Wicks was appointed co-head of non-marine and was also responsible for managing the London-based casualty treaty team.
He will report to Kieran Angelini-Hurl, CEO of Ed’s reinsurance division and will begin his new role with immediate effect.
Commenting on the hire, Angelini-Hurl said: “I am delighted to welcome Ian to our growing team. He is a true market grandee whose experience is second to none.”
“Ian’s exceptional insight and counsel will further enhance our proposition and I am certain that his influence will have an immediate positive effect,” he added.
