The candidate has an ‘excellent reputation’ in the London market and brings 20 years of industry experience to the role
MGA iprism has promoted Aaron Woodhams to the newly created role of head of underwriting.
Woodhams joined iprism in December 2019 from Arch’s Lloyd’s Syndicate 2012 - prior to his promotion, he worked as the MGA’s underwriting manager.
He brings 20 years of insurance industry experience to the position, having held various underwriting roles in the past at insurance companies Axiom and Allianz.
In his new role, Woodhams will take overall responsibility for the management, development and performance of delegated authority activity, including overseeing the MGA’s underwriting strategy, quality control and development.
Woodhams will also take on delegated authority underwriting and insurer relationship responsibilities from iprism’s underwriting director Gary Johnson, whose role will now focus on more technical aspects, such as policy wordings, documentation and claims.
iprism’s managing director Ian Lloyd said: “Since joining the business a little over a year and half ago, Aaron has played a significant role in our underwriting oversight and management.
“He has an excellent reputation in the London market and this promotion reflects his newly expanded role and responsibilities.
“I hope he will also play a key role in achieving our future growth ambitions.”
Woodhams added: “I’m pleased to be able to bring my experience and network to the new role and am looking forward to working more closely with Ian and our senior team.
“I’m focused on delivering profitable underwriting results for our insurer partners, underpinned by the technology-enabled iprism platform.”
