Fletcher will be responsible for the casualty book in the Birmingham region. He fills the position left by Dave Canning, who has been promoted to commercial casualty manager, regions.

Canning will now be responsible for managing casualty underwriting for all of LMI’s regional offices.

Coxon said: “The changes to the team reflect the growing demand that our commercial casualty team is experiencing. Neil brings a wealth of experience and expertise and we are confident that he will be able to help drive the growth of the commercial casualty portfolio across the UK. We congratulate Dave and welcome Neil and Chris to the team.”
