Operating alongside the existing Fine Art and Cargo books, Richard’s account will focus on Jewellers Block & Cash in Transit. Richard will be based in London and reports to Gregory Delaisse, Global Head of Marine single risk underwriting.
Richard joins the SCOR Specialty Insurance Marine team on 01 November. He was previously at Starstone where he led the Specie account. He brings over three decades of industry experience and is a member of both the London Insurance Specie and Technical Committees.
