Hamilton Underwriting appoints head of specialty

Hamilton Underwriting, the managing agency of Lloyd’s Syndicate 3334 and the Lloyd’s operations of Bermuda-based Hamilton Insurance Group, has appointed Adrian Daws as deputy active underwriter and head of specialty.

Daws will report to Trevor Carvey, active underwriter. He joins Hamilton Underwriting from Hardy (Underwriting Agencies), where he held the position of head of specialty lines for seven years.

Daws has more than 15 years of industry experience, with 13 years spent underwriting specialty classes of business.

Dermot O’Donohoe, chief executive officer of Hamilton Underwriting, said Carvey will help to diversify Syndicate 3334’s portfolio.

“It’s a pleasure to welcome Adrian to the Hamilton team,” said O’Donohoe. “With a proven track record of building successful and profitable accounts of specialty business, he’s considered a rising star in the Lloyd’s market.

“As we continue to expand the platform that we are establishing at Lloyd’s, Adrian’s experience and his well established relationships will be significant assets.”
