Simon Irving bolsters Shepherd Compello’s Flood team


Specialist insurance broker Shepherd Compello has today announced that Simon Irving  joined the firm as a Producing Broker and in-house underwriter, specialising in Flood, Forced Placed / REO, Mortgage Impairment, Homeowners and Commercial Insurance.  He takes up the position with immediate effect.

With Irving’s appointment Shepherd Compello will expand its presence in the North American Flood market placing and writing new business. He is a respected expert in the Flood arena and assisted many Agents when most markets were exiting the Flood market as a result of Hurricane Katrina. Since then he has helped drive the Excess Flood market forward in London and has now expanded to offer Primary Flood.

Simon Irving has been producing, placing and underwriting business in the London Market for nearly two decades. He specialises in the North American market and was previously at RK Harrison and most recently THB.

Mel Alexander, Director of Shepherd Compello commented:

“I am delighted that Simon has joined the team.  He is acknowledged as a leader in the flood market developing products and markets. His expertise will help us drive forward to develop new markets and opportunities. He will complement our existing client offering increasing our ability to be a one stop shop.”

Simon Irving added:

“I am excited to be joining Shepherd Compello because they offer clients another option, one which is independent and suited to them. There are many firms who can provide a mass market approach, but many clients tell me they want a one-to-one service. Shepherd Compello does just that and I am looking forward to that personal level of client service. ”
