Brit Strengthens Program Capability with Appointment of Tim Chesson


Brit Ltd (“Brit” or “the Group”) is pleased to announce that it has appointed Tim Chesson as Senior Vice President, Programs for Brit Global Specialty USA (“BGSU”).

Tim joined BGSU effective 23 January 2017, based in Alpharetta, GA and reporting to Noreen Metcalfe. He will focus on writing Property, Casualty, Package and miscellaneous lines to specialised US based agencies. With a focus on niche Program Managers written 100% on E&S and admitted paper, the approach differs from, and is complimentary to, Brit’s current London based MGA capabilities.

Tim brings with him a 35 year record of building and leading successful program based businesses. He joins from Axis Capital Holdings where he spent over 13 years, most recently as President, United States Division, where he ran the program business. Prior to Axis, Tim held senior roles at Combined Specialty Group, RLI Group and Zurich Insurance. He started his career at Hartford Insurance Group.

Nick Davies, President, Brit Americas, commented: “Tim represents an exciting hire for BGSU, and I am delighted to announce his appointment. With extensive expertise and a long pedigree in the program space, he adds a significant new component to our US offering.”

Matthew Wilson, Brit Group CEO, added: “This is another high-quality appointment for BGSU, and Tim will complement our already strong team. We continue to identify and capitalise on selective growth opportunities in the US market, with our ability to attract talent from across the industry being an important part of this strategy.”
