Ed expands property and casualty division with appointment of Namik Gulsun

14th February 2017

Ed, the global reinsurance, wholesale and specialty broker, today announces the appointment of Namik Gulsun as head of international property and casualty. Gulsun will work alongside James Venton, head of US property and casualty. He takes up his role with immediate effect and will report to Chris Bonard, CEO of Specialty at Ed.

Gulsun brings almost two decades of experience in the insurance industry to Ed. He joins from Willis Towers Watson where as an executive director he had served as head of Central & Eastern Europe including Turkey & CIS in the D&F Europe team under P&C Division. He began his broking career in 2003 at Aon Benfield. 

Chris Bonard, CEO - Ed Specialty said: “Namik is an excellent addition to our senior team and will play a key part in our international growth. Recognising that individual markets require individual expertise and understanding is a key part of our strategy and central to the differentiation of Ed’s offering. Namik brings proven expertise, a track record of putting client’s interests first and in-depth knowledge of some of our key growth markets. His is the latest in a series of appointments which emphasise the calibre of people who, along with our existing team of specialists, will quickly separate us from our peers. I am very pleased to welcome him to the team.”

Gulsun, said: “Over the past year Ed has become viewed as a modernising and disruptive force in the broking sector. I am delighted to be joining a business where there is a clear ambition and strategy to do things differently and the scope to make a genuine difference to both the company and perhaps our industry as a whole. I am delighted to have this opportunity.”
