He has a demonstrated track record of building and managing a complex portfolio of primary casualty business. This is another step in our ongoing strategy to expand our European business by extending capabilities in a number of different areas. We have made great strides in enhancing our primary casualty offering for UK commercial clients, and Denis’s arrival will further increase our expertise across a complex portfolio of primary public, products and employer’s liability risks.”

Anthony Kashuba, Senior Vice President, General Casualty, said, “Denis has unique technical knowledge and a deep understanding of the primary marketplace. His ability to introduce and manage new products within the area is an important element of both our European general casualty growth strategy, and our overall platform strategy.”
