Company commends Corfield's 'inimitable presence and style'

Lloyd’s syndicate Liberty was coming to terms with the departure of its director of underwriting, Tom Corfield, this week.

Corfield, who left the company by mutual consent, had been at Liberty for 11 years and was previously active underwriter before becoming director of underwriting this April.

Liberty, a subsidiary of US insurance giant Liberty Mutual, said in a statement: “Tom Corfield and Liberty Syndicates [LSM] have mutually agreed that Tom will be leaving the business to pursue new challenges and interests.

“LSM would like to take the opportunity to thank Tom for his 11-year tenure as its active underwriter and, more recently, his contribution as the director of underwriting. Tom's contribution to the work on the board of LSM has been most welcome.”

Liberty Syndicates chief executive Nick Metcalf said: “Tom's inimitable presence and style will be missed, as will his energy and enthusiasm. We wish him every success in the future.”
