Independent Lloyd’s broker creates Energy Practice, appoints Dominic Quick and Simon Pearce
London, 25 September, 2017: AFL Insurance Brokers Ltd (AFL) today announces the creation of an Energy Practice headed by experienced and respected London market broking professionals Dominic Quick and Simon Pearce.
The duo boast nearly 50 years of combined experience in the (re)insurance industry, with Quick’s background including roles at Tysers, JLT Specialty, Lloyd & Partners, JMD Specialist Insurance Services and Guy Carpenter. Prior to Tysers, Pearce’s background has included senior roles at JLT Specialty, RFIB Group and Swiss Re – his most recent roles in a career spanning over 33 years.
Quick and Pearce will spearhead the new Energy Practice at AFL, which will serve both AFL’s clients and customers from other independent brokers connected to AFL through the Worldwide Broker Network.
Toby Esser, AFL Chairman, said, “There is a lot of synergy between the skillsets of Dominic and Simon, and we’re delighted to have this experienced team championing the launch of our Energy Practice. We plan to offer a broad spectrum energy capability, with our main target market being the USA, but also including emerging markets such as Iran. Fantastic growth opportunities lie ahead.”
Bob Finch, AFL CEO, added, “We are delighted to welcome Dominic and Simon to our dynamic team. The launch of the Energy Practice will also see us work closely with our partners and friends in the Worldwide Broker Network – the largest organisation of privately held insurance brokers, controlling premiums in excess of US$50 billion.”
AFL Insurance Brokers continues to build on its established business following the acquisition of a controlling interest in the company by Toby Esser in a deal finalised in September, 2017. Looking ahead, the company’s expansion strategy will see it combine both sustainable, organic growth and bolt-on acquisitions.
