Aviva, RSA and Liberty poach up to nine Mitsui staff

Up to nine staff have left insurer Mitsui Sumitomo following a triple raid from Aviva, RSA and Liberty Mutual.

Aviva's head of corporate risk solutions, Dipak Warren, who left Mitsui in September, last week raided her former workplace to recruit property underwriting manager John Tiernan and has now been joined by two of his ex-colleagues.

Insurance Times also understands Liberty Mutual is expecting four Mitsui employees to join shortly, while RSA has poached two heavy-hitting underwriters - Nick Newlove and Dave Corrigan, along with Mark Winslade from QBE, to write risks for both the UK and Europe.

Mitsui confirmed that four members of its mid-market broker sales team and four underwriting staff have resigned.
