EC3 Brokers announces the expansion of its UK contingency and entertainment division, with the appointments of Rick Inglessis as entertainment development executive, Sheryl Harta as senior account handler and Caroline Taylor as operations manager. All three joined last month and will report to Charlie Connell, head of contingency and entertainment at EC3 Brokers.
Inglessis was as an entertainment development executive at Doodson Broking Group for more than seven years. He was previously a director at Aon Risk Solutions. Taylor was entertainment operations manager at Integro Insurance Brokers for more than three years following her initial role as entertainment broker from 2011 to 2015. Prior to this, she was at Bollington Insurance Brokers. Both Inglessis and Taylor will enhance EC3 Brokers’ presence in the music and entertainment industry.
Harta joined from Integro Insurance Brokers where she was a sports account broker for 17 years. With more than 20 years’ experience across a large portfolio of international clients, Harta will expand EC3 Brokers’ offering in the sports industry.
Connell said: “Rick, Sheryl and Caroline bring an array of experience and expertise to the entertainment and contingency division. Their knowledge of liability and property insurance, as well as other insurances classes connected to the sport and entertainment industry, is invaluable. This is a great opportunity for EC3 Brokers to expand organically.”
Danny Driscoll, CEO, added: “These individuals are an excellent addition to our existing team and their expertise moves us a step closer to becoming the premier independent specialist in the entertainment insurance industry.”
