Fidelis recruits Bob Clarkson to develop marine account

Fidelis Underwriting Ltd, a subsidiary of Bermuda-based Fidelis Insurance Holdings Limited, has recruited Bob Clarkson to its London underwriting team.

The experienced Clarkson was most recently Class Underwriter for Marine Hull and War at Brit Insurance. He had previously worked at QBE and Lloyd’s Claims Office in both underwriting and claims roles.

Fidelis Executive Head of Bespoke and Specialty Insurance Rich Coulson said that “Fidelis recognizes that there are strong niche opportunities in the Specialty lines, and to be successful in originating and underwriting those we need high calibre and experienced individuals. Bob clearly has the relationships and technical acumen to help us develop a selective and profitable marine account.”

Clarkson said that “working with Richard Brindle, Rich Coulson and the FUL team I look forward to developing the Fidelis brand and reputation within the marine sphere. The collegiate underwriting approach and lack of silo underwriting will also allow me to offer some of Fidelis’ innovative bespoke products in financing and balance sheet relief to the marine market clients.”
