Heath Lambert has announced two senior appointments within its reinsurance division. Jean-Michel Lewis has been appointed as Director and Nigel Earle has been promoted to Director.

Mr Lewis, most recently a partner at JLT Group, spent 25 years as an underwriter in both Lloyd's and the company market, including 14 years in a senior underwriting position, and was recognised as a major market lead for non-marine treaty business.

Mr Earle has been in the industry for 16 years, starting out at Richard Fielding. His areas of specialty include Israel, Australia and Northern and Eastern Europe.

Seymour Matthews, Managing Director, Heath Lambert Reinsurance, comments: "Nigel has worked successfully for the Group and thoroughly deserves his promotion.

"As well as working to retain top people, we have been seeking out some of the best minds in the market to add to our team, and it is very pleasing to welcome Jean-Michel aboard. He is a well-known and respected figure in the market and brings a lot to the table for our current and future clients.

"I expect to be able to announce further new appointments in the near future."
