Mutual marine insurer West of England Club has named Will Tobin as head of its offshore business. Tobin has substantial experience in the offshore sector and until recently held was Offshore Syndicate manager at Shipowners’ Club, as well as being responsible for Members domiciled in the Middle East and Indian sub-continent. He will augment the West of England’s existing offshore team, helping to expand the Club’s client base.
West Of England said that Club has identified offshore as an area for growth as it complements their existing product portfolio.
Tom Bowsher, West of England global CEO, said that “Will is well known throughout this market and brings a wealth of experience with him so we’re delighted to announce he’s joining the West. This is further evidence of our determination to grow and diversify our business in a manner which benefits our Members by investing in the right products and people.”
