Andrew Vince has joined Willis Re as deputy head of its global engineering practice.

Vince joins from TransRe where he was most recently manager of engineering treaty and onshore energy.

He has previously held positions at RSA, GE Frankona Re, and Chaucer. 

Tony Melia, CEO of Willis Re’s international practice said Vince is a “major addition” to its global engineering team.

“His extensive expertise and contacts in the engineering and construction arena will be invaluable in building Willis Re’s offer, at a time when global demand for (re)insurance solutions in construction and engineering is growing rapidly,” Melia added.

“We see huge growth potential in this vital specialist segment, and Andrew’s arrival will further enhance our market-leading position,” he added.
