Scottish office moves and new underwriters join Markel

Markel UK, the retail division of Markel International, has relocated its office in Scotland to Glasgow.

On the back of the move, two underwriters have been recruited to complete the team led by Kelly Costello, the Glasgow branch manager.

Stuart Rae joins from Aspen Insurance and will focus on social welfare risks.

Michael Bolton, who joins from RSA in Glasgow, will develop Markel’s professional and management risks portfolio.

Kelly Costello said: “Although Edinburgh has served us well as a regional base for Scotland, we have relocated to Glasgow as it provides a much better commercial environment and is recognised as the centre of the Scottish insurance market.”
