Former Aspen Re CEO joins Amlin

Amlin has appointed James Few as global managing director of reinsurance.

He will be supported by Christian Bieri, who continues to lead Amlin’s reinsurance business in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region, as well as Dominic Peters and Robert Wyatt who jointly lead the North American and international regions.

Last year, Few stepped down from his role as chief executive officer (CEO) of Bermuda-based Aspen Re.

Simon Beale, chief underwriting officer, said: “I am delighted to be able to welcome James to Amlin and believe his expertise will prove extremely valuable to our reinsurance business as we look to implement our longer term strategic objectives to enhance our offering.”

Few added: “Amlin has a fantastic reinsurance business with an excellent team, and I am looking forward to becoming part of that. I am excited about the opportunities that lie ahead for the business, and am committed to helping build upon the progress which has already been made.”

Charles Philipps, chief executive, added: “Amlin’s vision is to be the global reference point for quality in our markets and I believe we will achieve this ambition due to our strong foundations, superior financial strength and the calibre of our people. James will be an excellent addition to Amlin’s leadership team and I know that he will ensure our reinsurance business is well positioned for the future.”
