TMK strengthens aviation team 150 150 Haggie Partners

Tokio Marine Kiln (TMK), the leading specialist international insurer, today announces a number of high-profile appointments in the aviation team, as part of a renewed drive in the sector under the direction of CUO Matthew Shaw and David Slevin, the departmental head who joined last year.

Lisa Leahy joins from Faraday Underwriting, as a senior member of the team focussing primarily on airlines. At Faraday she was head of aviation. Matthew Farrar has joined as GA underwriter, moving from Lockton where he was aviation manager, with nearly 30 years’ experience in the market.  Leahy and Farrar are complemented by Lizanne Kooi, previously an aviation broker.

The new appointments follow the arrival of Graham Oddie, who joined recently from TMK’s office in Singapore, and now heads up the General Aviation (GA) team, among other responsibilities.

The appointments mark TMK’s continued investment in its aviation offering as it diversifies its portfolio to the benefit of clients and insurers.

Slevin said: “With the challenges facing the aviation market, now more than ever it is crucial that we invest in such impressive talent. Their extensive experience makes them a valuable addition as we continue to build out our aviation division here at TMK. I very much look forward to welcoming them to the team.”
