Over the last five years, he has led the Property Retrocession team to great success, and as he takes the helm of our Bermuda office he will look to expand our activities, targeting new areas for growth and seeking to enhance the expansive service capabilities that the division offers. I would also like to welcome James to our Bermuda team, who I am sure will make a very strong contribution to our ongoing success.”
