Reg Brown has joined Kiln's board as a non-executive director.

The director of Julius Group and former director of Octavian Syndicate Management and its successor company, Markel Syndicate Management, joined the syndicate group last week.

Brown, who has been on gardening leave since last November, announced a fortnight ago he would become a non-executive director of underwriting members' mutual club Integer, which is part of the Euclidian Group.

He is a former chairman of Lloyd's Underwriter's Non-Marine Association and was a former member of the Lloyd's Regulatory Board in 1999 and 2000. Brown was also president of the Chartered Insurance Institute last year and has been working in Lloyd's for more than 25 years.
