Mosaic opens New York office
Liam Jones, senior vice president, Mosaic
Mosaic Insurance has continued its recent spate of hiring with the appointment of Liam Jones as SVP and head of business development. Based in London and reporting to Mosaic Co-Founder & Co-CEO Mark Wheeler, Jones will focus on the start-up’s global product innovation and insurtech strategy. He will also be a member of the leadership team.
With 15 years’ experience in the global specialty underwriting sector, Jones has worked in the Lloyd’s, US, and Bermuda markets. Previously, he served as head of underwriting strategy for Liberty Specialty Markets. There, he also ran the financial lines, healthcare, and special risks divisions. Jones is also a mentor in the Lloyd’s Lab incubator and holds advisory board positions at several insurtech companies.
In his new role, he will lead activity to “enhance existing coverage and address emerging exposures through the evolution of new products across the firm’s specialty lines”, the firm said.
“He will drive strong integration between underwriting and technology, working closely with all product units to enhance Mosaic’s pioneering insurtech platform.”
Wheeler welcomed the appointment: “Liam has an outstanding reputation as a highly-regarded specialty underwriter. He is an innovator and strategic thinker with a strong sense of purpose, well known for his commitment to harnessing technology and the development and creation of new specialty products.”
Jones said: “At a time when the opportunity to advance products, distribution, and technical underwriting capabilities is so high, it is very exciting to join a company focused on harnessing what is possible.
“Our industry needs more solutions, improved efficiency, and greater transparency for clients—and I truly believe Mosaic is on course to demonstrate how this can be done successfully.”
