Starstone appoints new London cargo head


StarStone, formerly known as Torus and which is now owned by Bermuda-based Enstar, has announced the appointment of Rod O’Malley as of head of cargo in London.

O’Malley will report to Simon Schnorr, global head of marine, and joins in July from XL Catlin, where he was head of the UK cargo team and senior class underwriter. He has more than 35 years’ experience as a marine cargo underwriter, having worked extensively in both the Lloyd’s and company markets in London.

Schnorr said: “Rod joins us to build on StarStone’s strong existing cargo foundations in London. His considerable experience and market standing will help further fortify StarStone’s cargo offering and ensure our continued success in developing new opportunities, both in London and globally.”

In addition, StarStone said that its current London cargo underwriter Henry Wood has been promoted to senior underwriter and will work closely with O’Malley to expand StarStone’s cargo book.
