Markel recruits two from RSA’s Swedish insurer Trygg-Hansa
Markel International, the specialist insurer, has made two appointments in Sweden with both recruits joining from RSA’s Swedish insurer Trygg-Hansa. Daniel Lells joins as a programme business manager in Malmo and Jakob Holmen as underwriting manager in its Stockholm office. The appointments follow Torgny Johansson joining the firm as managing director in Stockholm, to drive Markel’s development across Scandinavia.
In his new role, Daniel will focus on building and developing Markel’s business in southern Sweden and extending its reach into Denmark, working closely with the brokers in the region while supporting the team in Stockholm to strengthen Markel’s programme business offering throughout Scandinavia. Jakob will focus on developing Markel’s specialty business, underwriting both liability and cargo business. Both join from Trygg-Hansa where Jakob was head of underwriting in its affinity and specialty division and Daniel was Nordic portfolio manager for its specialty business.
“The appointments of Daniel and Jakob will help us further position ourselves as a sector specialist and leader in liability insurance.
We believe in being specialised where it matters, and we will offer brokers high service levels and efficient distribution to support substantial growth in Scandinavia,” said Johansson.
