RFIB has appointed Duncan Urquhart as head of property, energy and construction, effective immediately.
Urquhart joins the Lloyd's (re)insurance broker from Limehouse Agencies Limited, where he served as head of distribution. Urquhart brings over 30 years’ experience, beginning his insurance career in Melbourne, Australia at Sedgwick, before holding a series of senior insurance broking positions in London and Asia, including those at Marsh and Willis Towers Watson.
Urquhart commented: “I am extremely enthused to be joining RFIB at such an interesting time in the market, as an independent broker RFIB is extremely well positioned to take advantage of the changing market conditions. The firm has a strong culture and is committed to investment in people to provide growth and exceptional service to its global clients.”
His appointment follows that of Kevin Stratton, who was named managing director of RFIB's recently restructured specialty business last week, effective 1 January 2019.
