I head up our General Liability (GL) team of underwriters. We provide third-party liability coverage (both public and products) to a large group of diverse risk managed companies. Typically, these are US-based and part of the Fortune 1000. My three young kids take up most of my free time. When I do get a moment of peace, I am an avid Chelsea fan. I also really enjoy cooking and eating out.

As a General Liability Underwriter, I analyse, price and negotiate contract terms for large and complex third-party liability risks, predominantly from the US. With a diverse expertise and appetite, ranging from excess casualty for Fortune 1000 businesses to primary level coverage for SMEs, I aim to create long- term solutions and client relationships. To switch off, I enjoy running, tennis and learning to solve cryptic crosswords.

As an Underwriter on our US General Liability team, I offer clients cover for their third-party liabilities arising from the products they sell or their premises. While we focus on US-based Fortune 1000 companies, we also cover global exposures. Our portfolio mainly includes the rail, construction, manufacturing, and hospitality sectors. Outside of work, I’m attempting to learn to play the piano, and have a serious love/hate relationship with running.
