Everest Insurance has appointed Paul Trueman as head of aviation for its international business. He will report to Jason Keen, co-lead of Everest Insurance International.

Trueman brings more than 15 years of experience to the newly created role, where he will lead the Airlines, Aerospace and General Aviation portfolio, responsible for overseeing underwriting, market engagement and treaty purchasing for the company’s international aviation customers around the world.

“Now, more than ever, the aviation market is ripe for a partner who can deliver the specialised expertise, financial stability and service Everest is known for globally,” said Keen.

“Paul’s extensive background, coupled with his deep local market knowledge, makes him the perfect executive to support the unique and growing needs of customers across the industry, and I look forward to working with him as he continues to build a world-class team.”

Trueman joins Everest Insurance International from Global Aerospace Underwriting Managers where he most recently served as underwriting manager, responsible for the underwriting strategy of the company’s airline portfolio and managing market leading proposition for clients and brokers.

Prior to that, he was head of Aviation & Space for ACR, overseeing underwriting management of the global portfolio across General Aviation, Aerospace Products & Airports, Airline and Space. He has also held underwriter positions at AIG and Catlin within the Asia Pacific region.
