(Re)insurance broking group Ed has appointed Carrie Kelley as executive vice president, head of property insurance, based in the recently launched operation in Bermuda.
In her new role, Kelley will report to Chris Bonard, CEO of Ed Broking’s new Bermuda platform.
She has more than 16 years’ industry experience and joins Ed from Barbican Underwriting Bermuda, where she most recently served as underwriter of the Property D&F portfolio.
Kelley has held previous roles including senior vice president, property broker, at Bowring Marsh Bermuda, property facultative broker at Guy Carpenter Bermuda, and vice president & property broker at Marsh USA in Chicago.
Bonard said: “We are delighted to have added a producer with Carrie’s market experience and profile to our new Bermuda operation. She has an excellent track record working with complex multi-national accounts from the North American Fortune 1000 and was instrumental in the development of a Middle Market book of business new to the island. She has solid relationships both with clients and the local underwriting community, which will be invaluable as we build out Ed’s independent wholesale broking platform in Bermuda to give our clients access to a marketplace they had not been fully utilizing.”
Kelley added: “Bermuda is an important market that I’ve worked in for many years and know well. Ed is building a new and different operation which will strongly appeal to clients. I am excited to be building a new business and bringing new pipelines of business to the Bermuda market.”
