Alesco has appointed two partners to its expanding energy division.
In her new role Alison Schwab will primarily focus on Alesco’s energy casualty business and will report to managing partner Simon Clarkson. She joins the company from Wortham Insurance in Houston where she held the position of director. Prior to this, Schwab was with Lockton in Houston for eight years, and spent seven years as an environmental underwriter at AIG.
Meanwhile, Mark Smith is due to join the company in February. Smith joins Alesco from AAA Insurance & Reinsurance Brokers, bringing over two decades of experience in insurance broking, with particular expertise in technical trading within the African and Eastern European energy markets.
Commenting on the two new appointments, Clarkson said: "In 2017 we had a dozen new team members join Alesco's energy practice, with more than 100 across the wider business, so it's great to continue that momentum in 2018 with these two equally impressive hires from the global broking world."
