Key appointment in the offshore insurance market

Industry Database

The West of England, a leading A-rated mutual marine insurer, has announced the appointment of a key strategic hire to support its strategy of expansion in the offshore market.

Will Tobin will join the Club in July to head up its offshore business. Will has substantial experience in the offshore sector and until recently held a similar position at another International Group Club. He will augment the West of England’s existing offshore team, helping to expand the Club’s client base and project their service to a global membership in this specialised area of operation.

The Club has identified offshore as an area for growth as it complements their existing product portfolio and core strength of outstanding service as well as building on existing knowledge and experience.

This news follows the Club’s recent move to a modern, efficient office space at the heart of London’s insurance sector and the launch of a new brand identity.
