Professional indemnity firm, DUAL Corporate Risks, has appointed Liz Hanlon to its DUAL Focus team.
The firm specialises in directors & officers and professional indemnity underwriting for mid-market companies, and its Focus unit provides insurance solutions for more complex financial-institution based risks.
Ms Hanlon has 20 years’ industry experience and will be responsible for launching a new Focus range, including Bankers Blanket Bond and Computer Crime.
She joins DUAL from Argo-Heritage where she developed a diverse, mid-market financial institutions portfolio.
Tim Bilborough, an existing member of the DUAL Corporate Risks underwriting team will be working alongside Ms Hanlon and Beth Whybrow is also joining from Argo-Heritage, as assistant underwriter.
The group’s executive chairman, Russell Kilpatrick, comments:
“Since its launch in April, DUAL Focus has gone from strength to strength with demand well exceeding expectations.”
He adds: “The new products which Liz will introduce will make DUAL Focus one of the leading financial institution portfolios available in the market.”
Last month, the firm opened a new office in Dublin, headed by Brian Martin who joined DUAL from AIG in Ireland.
