Tokio Marine HCC launches Professional Indemnity operation in Manchester
Tokio Marine HCC is pleased to announce the appointment of Frances Eaton as a Senior Professional Indemnity / Directors & Officers underwriter based in the Tokio Marine office in York St, Manchester.
Frances has worked in the Manchester insurance market for 26 years, starting her career at CIGNA in the liability department. She then worked at AIG and CNA as a financial lines underwriter and has most recently worked at WRB Underwriting, where she opened their Manchester office in 2008 and held the position of Branch Manager. Frances will be working with Adrian Farnell who joined Tokio Marine HCC as a Liability underwriter in 2012.
Frances and Adrian will also be working alongside the underwriters from Tokio Marine Kiln and will look to develop complementary products for the local market.
Andrew Macpherson, Regional Underwriting Director, says “The appointment of Frances, who brings a wealth of technical experience with her, demonstrates Tokio Marine HCC’s continued investment in and commitment to its UK regional operation.”
Tony Browne, Managing Director of Professional Risks, said of the move, “Tokio Marine HCC and Tokio Marine Kiln offer complementary products, so it makes good sense to work on how we can best pool our resources and provide a more complete offering to our brokers. With this in mind, I am delighted to confirm the appointment of Frances and that our Professional Risks unit in Manchester will be sharing offices with the Tokio Marine Kiln team. I look forward to successfully developing further our business in the North West with the local broking community.”
The Tokio Marine HCC regional footprint also includes underwriting centres in Bristol, Birmingham, Leeds and Newcastle.
