Neon expands Property Insurance team

Neon is pleased to announce that Sam Yates and Jonathan Powell have joined its Property Insurance team.

Sam has spent over 10 years focused on property underwriting and will be responsible for expanding Neon’s open market property direct and facultative (D&F) business in London, working closely with Chris Fisher and Dwayne Hunt in Neon’s Bermuda office to complement the strong North American portfolio Neon has already established via Bermuda.

Jonathan is a Lloyd’s market veteran with over 30 years’ experience. He was most recently at Hiscox, where his key focus was North American binders. He will concentrate on building out Neon’s offering in the residential binder space to supplement its existing open market D&F and property reinsurance businesses.

Chris Fisher, Chief Executive Officer of Neon Bermuda and Head of Property Insurance, commented:

“I am delighted to welcome Sam and Jonathan to our Property Insurance team. These hires are a bold statement of Neon’s ambition to grow its property insurance proposition and provide further evidence of our ability to attract high-quality talent.”

“Sam is a technically strong underwriter with in-depth knowledge of the market following his days at Ariel and FM Global, and Jonathan’s longstanding relationships are highly complementary to Neon’s open market D&F book.”

Mr. Fisher continued:

“These hires continue to strengthen Neon’s global reach and I am excited by the opportunity to package other lines alongside our residential property business and to utilise our cross-class capabilities. I look forward to working with our expanded team as we continue to grow and enhance our offering to clients and brokers.”
