Matt Waghorn will take up his new position in August 2016 to strengthen the Syndicate’s Professional Indemnity product offering with a focus on North America binder business. Matt, who previously worked at Beazley and has over 14 years’ experience in the market, will report directly to the Active Underwriter, Bradley Knight.
Joe Sweeting joined Vibe on the 17th March 2016 as Class Underwriter Casualty Treaty having previously worked at Hiscox and Amlin, Joe will broaden the syndicate’s International treaty offering to cover North American business.
Bradley Knight said “Matt Waghorn and Joe Sweeting bring tremendous experience to the Syndicate. They will build on the foundation stones we established in July 2014 when we started to write live business”. He went on to say he was confident Vibe would continue to attract high quality underwriters to help build out the Syndicate’s live platform.
