Ed continues building its presence in Bermuda
Ed, the global reinsurance, wholesale and specialty broker, has appointed Carrie Kelley as executive vice president and head of property insurance for Bermuda. She reports to Chris Bonard, CEO of Ed Broking’s new Bermuda platform.
Kelley joins from Barbican Underwriting Bermuda where she was underwriter of the property direct and facultative portfolio. Before that she held roles as senior vice president, property broker at Bowring Marsh Bermuda, property facultative broker at Guy Carpenter Bermuda and vice president and property broker at Marsh USA in Chicago, in a career spanning more than 16 years.
Bonard noted her excellent track record working with complex multi-national accounts from North American Fortune 1000 companies, calling her “instrumental in the development of a middle market book of business new to the island.”
He added: “She has solid relationships both with clients and the local underwriting community, which will be invaluable as we build out Ed’s independent wholesale broking platform in Bermuda to give our clients access to a marketplace they had not been fully utilising.”
The hire strengthens Ed’s presence on the island, having only received regulatory approval to begin operating in Bermuda in June.
Kelley said, “Bermuda is an important market that I’ve worked in for many years and know well. Ed is building a new and different operation which will strongly appeal to clients.”
