West strengthens offshore team

West of England P&I Club has added to its offshore team with the appointment of Michael Stockwell as Offshore Underwriter. Stockwell joins West from his previous position as Director, Legal and Insurance, with Ardent Group. He has also worked at broker Marsh.

Will Tobin, Head of Offshore at West P&I Club said that “I am delighted Mike Stockwell is joining West to strengthen our offshore team. His depth of knowledge in the offshore and salvage industries will be invaluable in providing a first-class service for our Members. Mike’s first-hand experience of the offshore industry, coupled with his knowledge of the liability insurance market, makes him an ideal fit for the team and his appointment further bolsters West’s credentials as a leading provider of liability cover to the offshore and specialist vessel sector.  

Stockwell’s appointment follows the appointment last month of Captain Simon Hodgkinson as Global Head of West’s Loss Prevention department.
