Commercial lines insurer, Liberty International Underwriters Europe (LIU Europe), is expanding its operations into Birmingham with the appointment of Dave Canning as regional senior underwriter.

In his new post, Mr Canning will focus on establishing LIU Europe in the Birmingham area, drawing on his previous experience of underwriting liability business for a number of major insurers in the UK.

Commenting on the appointment, the firm’s managing director commercial business UK and Ireland, Paul Kurgo, says: “While we have been servicing Birmingham and the Midlands business from our Bristol office, the establishment of a presence in Birmingham, which represents a major insurance market in the UK, is a logical move for us and allows us to provide a local underwriting service that our brokers and clients demand.”

Last week, LIU Europe appointed Matthew Hogg to head its newly established Strategic Assets division.

The London-based unit has been set up to underwrite a range of specialist risks, including intellectual property, reputational risks, cyber insurances and non-material damage business interruption.

Mr Hogg joined LIU Europe in January, from Marsh.
