The Chaucer global energy practice has appointed a seven-strong business development management team to provide expert technical underwriting and risk management support to its underwriting team.

The team has skills in energy and nuclear insurance knowledge, including business analysis, modelling, wordings and policy administration.

The team will play a key role in the development of Chaucer’s global energy practice, established in November last year as part of Chaucer’s Foundation Flex Flagship corporate strategy.

The practice incorporates Chaucer’s existing energy and engineering expertise together with Nuclear Syndicate 1176, to provide a fully integrated Energy underwriting capability for broker and client requirements.

Gary March, newly-appointed divisional underwriting manager, will lead the team. March has over 25 years of underwriting and broking experience, having held positions at Travelers and JLT.

Chris White, head of Chaucer Syndicate 1084’s global energy practice said: “The launch of this new team is a key milestone in the implementation of our Foundation Flex Flagship strategy and I am extremely pleased with our progress to date.”

March, divisional underwriting manager, Chaucer Syndicates 1084 said he was ‘delighted’ to be part of the team.
