Ed, the global reinsurance, wholesale and specialty group, today announced the appointment of Andy Wakefield as Managing Director - Marine and Energy Reinsurance. He will take up his role later on this year and will report to Kieran Angelini-Hurll, CEO, Reinsurance.

Wakefield brings over 25 years’ experience in the marine and energy sector to Ed. He joins from Willis Re where he served most recently as an Executive Director, where he focused on European and London market business. Prior to this, Wakefield served as a senior broker at Aon Benfield. He began his career at Tysers.

Angelini-Hurll said: “Andy is an excellent addition to our reinsurance team and the ideal candidate to spearhead the growth of our marine and energy reinsurance offering. This market is primed for a reinsurance broker with global reach which does not compete with its clients. The opportunities for significant and rapid expansion in this sector are clear. Andy’s reputation, expertise and vision will be a key part of our success. He will ensure that our proposition sets itself apart and that we attract the right talent to complement our existing expertise. I am very pleased to welcome him to the team.”
