Broking group BMS has hired Australia-based facultative broker Glenn Kerr to its wholesale team.

Kerr previously worked at rival reinsurance broker Aon Benfield. He will be based in Sydney and will lead the continued growth of BMS’s wholesale and facultative business in the Asia-Pacific region.

He will report to BMS wholesale chief executive Nick Cook.

Cook said: “As we continue the expansion of our wholesale and facultative platform, I am delighted that we have secured an individual of such high calibre. Glenn is a highly respected broker and producer and will be key to the growth of our business in the region.”

Kerr added: “Having initially been attracted by its independence, I am thrilled to be joining BMS at such an exciting time. The Asia-Pacific region is a growing area and has enormous potential for both facultative and wholesale business. I am pleased to be leading the charge on behalf of such an innovative and entrepreneurial company.”
