London-headquartered wholesaler Ed has hired Souvik Goswami to lead its treaty business in the Middle East.

Goswami joins from Saudi Re and he will also be responsible for North Africa, India and the sub-continent region.

While at Saudi Re, Goswami was head of non-life underwriting, facultative and treaty at the Riyadh-based reinsurer. According to Ed, he will be responsible for sourcing new business and “strengthening the firm’s relationships with [existing] clients”.

Minesh Jani, head of Ed for the MENA region, welcomed Goswami’s arrival: “Souvik’s a first-class addition to the team – and will make a significant impact on our service. Not only does he know the MENA and South Asian markets inside out, he’s also highly-respected by clients within those markets”.
