BMS expands reinsurance offering with senior appointments

BMS Group (“BMS” or “the Group”), the independent specialist (re)insurance broker, today announced the appointments of Norman Wiltshire and Nick Titcomb as Directors of BMS Strategic Risk Solutions (“SRS”), BMS’s specialty (re)insurance division. Wiltshire and Titcomb will join BMS upon completion of current contractual obligations in July and October, reporting to Hannah Watkins, Managing Director of BMS SRS.

Wiltshire having retired from Aon, will join BMS to work closely with Watkins in the build out of BMS’ London Market Reinsurance offering. Starting his career at a Lloyd’s syndicate, with time at both CE Heath and CT Bowring, Wiltshire played a key role in the development of the Benfield Non Marine London Market team. Including his time at Aon, Wiltshire has 50 years of experience – bringing with him a wealth of knowledge and insight which will be invaluable as part of the BMS London Market reinsurance strategy.

Titcomb will be taking up a dual role with responsibilities for developing both US and London market marine reinsurance. He will also work closely with the fast developing US based production team.

Titcomb has over 40 years’ experience in the (re)insurance market, specialising in US marine reinsurance. Before joining BMS, he was a Senior Vice President at Marsh since 2017, where he has focused on the US and London reinsurance markets as well as fixed price P&I facilities.

Watkins said: “We continue to hire like-minded individuals that share our belief that personalised service and advice is key for our client base. This forms part of our specialty reinsurance and retro strategies alongside our continued overall investment in the US and London. Nick’s expertise complements an already successful Marine Reinsurance Team and Norman’s experience is second to none. We very much look forward to welcoming both Norman and Nick to the team later this year.”
