Sompo International Holdings Ltd., a Bermuda-based specialty provider of property and casualty (re)insurance has named James McDonald as its new head of London market energy.

McDonald brings more than three decades of experience across both the broking and underwriting sectors. He joins the firm from Talbot and has previously held senior roles at Cotesworth, Goshawk and Sedgwick.  

Julian James, chief executive officer, International Insurance at Sompo International, said: “As the industry adapts to the post-Covid world, our focus is on getting ever closer to our clients and broker partners to deliver the solutions they need to navigate this changing risk environment. Whilst the energy sector is challenged by the pandemic, increased volatility in oil prices and other factors, we continue to take a long-term view of this important class of business and remain committed to pursuing sustainable growth through a connected approach across upstream, downstream and renewables.”
