THB, the specialist international insurance and reinsurance broking operation of US wholesale broker AmWINS, today announces the appointment of Paul Baker as associate director for its award-winning North America Special Risks division based in London.
Joining from Tysers, Baker has worked in insurance broking for 35 years, specialising in North American property/catastrophe and transportation risks, both on a facultative basis and in the form of binding authorities. “Like many in the Lloyd’s market, I respect Paul’s knowledge and years of experience. It is my great pleasure to welcome him to our team and I am confident that having Paul on board will open up further opportunities in the North American market where he will have a particular focus on flood and transportation,” said Tony Driver, managing director of THB North America Special Risks.
Baker added: “I am excited to be joining the THB family, a business which I believe has the perfect blend of excellent market connections, built up over six decades of independent wholesale broking, and progressive thinking, being part of the US wholesaler AmWINS with its 150-year vision. I look forward to working with a new team of colleagues, sharing my experience and using my market knowledge to create new opportunities and further grow the division’s business.”
