BMS continues US Property Treaty build-out with EVP hire

By: Newsroom

BMS, the independent specialist insurance and reinsurance broker, today announces that David Cameron has been appointed as Executive Vice President, Property Treaty, effective on 1st March. Cameron will join BMS’s Edina, Minnesota office and report to Pete Chandler, President and CEO of BMS Re.

He will work closely with Jeff Irvan, Chief Property Officer, and Kirk Conrad, Chief Analytics Officer, to expand product offerings, deliver unparalleled experience and expand the thought leadership for which BMS is already recognized in the reinsurance market. BMS has made several senior hires in the US property space, most recently with the appointment of Kevin Gordon as Senior Vice President in the Chicago office, and it will continue to be a key growth area in both the near and long term.

Cameron was most recently a Senior Advisor at Renaissance Re from 2015 to 2019 and brings 30 years of reinsurance experience to BMS. He began his career as a reinsurance broker at E. W. Blanch in 1989, before joining Guy Carpenter in 2000 and then returning to Benfield Blanch in 2001. He remained there in a range of senior roles as it became Benfield and finally Aon Benfield. Cameron has experience across nearly all lines of business, but is most widely recognized for his role with a variety of Property Treaty clients, including stock, mutual, reciprocals, and Lloyd’s Syndicates.

Chandler said: “Our reinsurance operation is rapidly growing with a number of senior hires in recent months. We will continue to build out our capabilities and are resolute in our ambition to become the independent broker of choice. We are client-focused, analytics-driven, and know that exceptional talent creates outstanding results for our partners. David’s extensive experience will contribute significantly to our strategic expansion in the Property Treaty space and I am very pleased to welcome him to BMS.”
Cameron said: “BMS has an exceptional reputation in the market for its data-driven, client-centric approach, and has been expanding its offering in both the US and globally. There are significant opportunities in the treaty reinsurance space and I am looking forward to working with Pete, Jeff and Kirk to provide the market with best-in-class advice and brokerage services and to help with BMS’s continued build-out”.
