Beazley’s role is expanded at the re/insurer as Few joins reinsurance broker TigerRisk as CEO of its London office.

Few joined MS Amlin in 2015 and drove the evolution of the global reinsurance offering.

Simon Beale, MS Amlin’s CEO, said: “James has made a valuable contribution to MS Amlin, but we understand this is an exciting opportunity for his career with TigerRisk Partners. We wish him well in his next endeavour and looking forward to continuing our relationship into the future.”

Beazley will set the strategy of the group’s reinsurance business and be supported by Dominic Peters, chief underwriting officer and Phil Wooldridge as reinsurance lead and joint active underwriter for the group’s Lloyd’s platform.

He joined MS Amlin in 2007, taking on senior roles within the London marine and reinsurance businesses, launched MS Amlin’s operations in Singapore and acted as head of global clients and strategy for MS Amlin’s reinsurance unit in Singapore.

In 2016 he served a two-year secondment as CEO of the London Market Group (LMG).

“Since joining MS Amlin over 10 years ago, Chris has been an integral part of the management team,” said Beale.

“His leadership skills, global experience and market expertise will be invaluable to the reinsurance team as it continues to drive the business forward to the next stage of its development.

“Our leading reinsurance business continues to be at the core of MS Amlin’s offering and our experienced team of senior underwriters and claims experts across London, Zurich, Bermuda and beyond work tirelessly with our broking partners to deliver innovative solutions to meet our clients’ needs,” Beale added.
