BMS boosts Bermuda team with hires from Price Forbes and JLT Bermuda


Re/insurance broker BMS Group has hired executives from Price Forbes and JLT Bermuda to help it boost its operations on Bermuda, saying it wants to offer local market knowledge rather than operate remotely.

George Bowring joins from Price Forbes where he originally started seven years ago in the US non-marine team. For the past three years, he has worked as a casualty producer and placing broker for the Bermudian market, specialising in complex large risks.

Kian Wookey has 17 years’ experience in the US property and energy markets, working with a large network of US retail brokers. He most recently served as the head of property at JLT Bermuda, having moved to Bermuda from Lloyd and Partners in 2011.

Ian Gormley, director of BMS Group, said: “BMS has a long history with the Bermuda market; we first opened on the island back in 2002. This latest build out enhances our ability to offer choice and local market knowledge on the island rather than remotely.

“George Bowring’s experience and relationships will bring an extra dimension to the BMS Energy platform given Bermuda is a critical market for this sector.

“With London market capacity tightening in the property space, Kian’s track record of success in the Bermudian market will be a timely addition to our placement capabilities, benefiting existing clients and creating new opportunity.”
