Occam Underwriting has tapped former Ironshore executive Mark Fisher as CFO and promoted Daniel Carr to the board of directors.

Fisher joins the speciality managing general agency (MGA) from Ironshore, where he most recently served as director and head of international finance. Prior to that, he held a number of senior roles at CNA Insurance, including as European financial controller.

Meanwhile, Carr has been with the firm since 2015 and has led the cyber practice for the past eighteen months. As well as joining the board, Carr will continue in his role as head of innovation and cyber insurance. 

The appointments come after Sciemus rebranded to Occam Underwriting in July as part of a series of changes which included the resignation of former Sciemus chief Rick Welsh and the subsequent appointment of Lance Gibbins as chairman and CEO of the company.

Gibbins remarked: “The appointments of Dan Carr and Mark Fisher to senior positions at Occam Underwriting is a continuation of a programme to build a strong management and board of directors.

“We have genuine industry experts on all of our teams, each shaping the approach we undertake. By both leading their respective teams and being partners in the executive management, they will make significant strategic contributions to the future of our business.”
