Beazley has named Martin Fricke as its new head of treaty in the company's Munich office, succeeding Andreas Bergler who has been appointed Beazley's head of broker relations for continental Europe.
In his role, Fricke is reporting to Patrick Hartigan, team leader of treaty business.
Fricke began his career at Aon Benfield before moving to Beazley in 2010 where, as treaty underwriter for continental Europe, he has been responsible for building relationships with ceding companies in Germany, Austria and central and east European markets.
Beazley has had a treaty team in Munich since 2008. It underwrites European reinsurance business, with a focus on property catastrophe, property risk and casualty clash lines.
Patrick Hartigan said: "It is testament to the strength and depth of our treaty team that we have been able to recruit from within for this key role. I am delighted that Martin will be leading our team as we build on the successes of the past 10 years."
