Ascot announces executive appointments


Ascot has appointed Patrick Kenahan as head of excess casualty in Bermuda. In addition Jason Pugi, Kimberley Pursell and Michael Watkins have been appointed senior vice presidents.

The team will write excess casualty insurance for large corporations across a broad range of industry classes.

Kenahan joins Ascot with over 25 years of experience in the insurance industry, 16 of which have been in Bermuda. He joins the company from Allied World where he was senior vice president and Bermuda branch manager.

“Pat and the team have a strong reputation in the market for their casualty insurance expertise,” said Ian Thompson, head of casualty & Specialty, Ascot Re. “Their underwriting acumen is consistent with Ascot’s underwriting philosophy and the brand that we continue to build on the island. The addition of this team means Ascot is now in a position where we operate in almost all casualty and specialty classes of business in the Bermudian market.”
