Stephen Moss is set to join Zurich from Brit as UK head of specialty lines, replacing Steve Watson.
Prior to joining Zurich, Moss served as portfolio underwriting director for Brit syndicate for 12 years covering all direct long tail business written globally by syndicate.
As part of a restructure at Zurich, Watson has taken on a new role within the company, responsible for leading Zurich’s technical underwriting in the UK.
UK head of commercial insurance Vinicio Cellerini said: “Stephen joins us with a host of experience gained across a broad spectrum of financial, specialty, and casualty lines – and I’m pleased he’ll be able to bring that to our team.”
Cellerini added: “We have a clear focus for our commercial business and the unified approach to the market we implemented earlier this year is already re-cementing our position as the go-to insurer for commercial risks here in the UK.”
