Cargo, specie and terrorism underwriter returns to Markel


Markel International has appointed Brook Styles as cargo, specie and terrorism underwriter in London. 

Styles has over 13 years’ experience in marine underwriting. He started his career at Markel, but left to join Pioneer Underwriting, where he was most recently head of marine specialty. 

He reports to Chris Fenn, divisional managing director of international marine, and works with the cargo, specie and terrorism teams on existing portfolios, as well as helping to drive new products. 

Fenn said Styles “brings with him a strong network of broker relationships, excellent technical underwriting abilities and a wealth of knowledge and expertise in these key classes.”
