‘Our London market operations are a central component of the overall business,’ says chief underwriting officer

Tokio Marine HCC International (TMHCCI) has restructured three of its London market businesses to operate under one roof.

A statement released yesterday (4 May 2023) said the company’s energy, marine and renewables businesses will be brought under one operating structure.

It added the move would “facilitate future growth and drive greater efficiencies”.

Simon Button, TMHCCI’s chief underwriting officer for the London market, said: “Our London market operations are a central component of TMHCCI’s overall business and they play a key role in the wider market.”

New appointment

As part of the move, Ben Kinder will head up the businesses as the new chief underwriting officer for marine, energy and renewables.

Kinder joined the company from Zurich, where he was head of energy casualty.

Button added: “While we have enjoyed considerable success to date, our ambition is to keep growing, while still providing the same level of expertise and service to clients and brokers alike.

“The addition of Ben’s formidable skills and experience to the team will allow us to do that.”
