Endurance welcomes global head of marine & energy

Endurance Specialty has announced that Adrian Poxon has joined the company to launch a global marine and energy reinsurance business.

Poxon has more than twenty-five years of experience in the marine and offshore markets and has held senior roles at insurers, reinsurers and brokers. As global head of marine & energy, Poxon will report to Peter Mills, executive vice president and head of global specialty reinsurance and is joined by Reinier Jansen, deputy head of marine & energy and two senior underwriters, Matthias Wisotzki and Stephan Schrecke. The team is located in Endurance's Zurich office.

Mills comments, "With almost a century of collective insurance industry experience among them and a stellar reputation within the marine and energy market, I am very pleased that Endurance has recruited an underwriting team of this caliber. As we continue to add specialty capabilities, we become a more valued partner to our key brokers and cedants."

Poxon joins Endurance from PartnerRe where he was head of marine and offshore energy for the past seven years.  Prior to that, he held a similar role for Gerling in the UK for five years and worked with several London market brokers and insurers earlier in his career.
