Specialist insurer Beazley has appointed Chris Hill as an underwriter within its U.S. marine team. He will be based in New York and will underwrite a U.S.-wide book of marine hull and liability risks.

Hill joins Beazley from Berkley Offshore Underwriting Managers where he spent more than seven years, most recently as vice president in the marine underwriting team.

A graduate of the United States Merchant Marine Academy, Kings Point, N.Y., Hill previously held underwriting roles at Starr Insurance Companies and The Hartford and was an account executive at Gallagher.

Hill joins John Moy and Reese Lever within the marine underwriting team and reports to Steve Vivian, who launched Beazley’s U.S. marine business in 2017.

“I’m very pleased to welcome Chris to our team,” said Vivian. “Chris is highly respected in the marine insurance industry and brings a wealth of underwriting and market experience that will help us to realise our ambitions of steady and consistent growth. We are well positioned to harness current market opportunities and to continue developing long-term partnerships with brokers and clients.”
