Hamilton Underwriting, the Lloyd’s arm of the Bermudian (re)insurer Hamilton Insurance Group, has appointed Neil Lee-Amies as head of treaty.

Lee-Amies replaces Trevor Carvey – who was also active underwriter at syndicate 3334 – following his resignation in February.

The departures led to a reshuffle of the senior management team with the former head of specialty Adrian Daws and the then head of direct and facultative property Miles Osorio each assuming the position of active underwriter.

Deputy active underwriter Stuart Quinlan announced his plans to leave the carrier at the same time as Carvey.

In his new role Lee-Amies will report to Daws and Osorio.

Lee-Amies joins from Chubb where he has spent the last 11 years, most recently head of marine and energy treaty for Chubb Tempest Re following the takeover of Chubb by Ace.

Prior to joining Chubb, Lee-Amies was employed at Wurttembergische UK – which now comes under the Antares Underwriting umbrella - as marine non-proportional treaty manager and underwriter.

“I’m delighted that Neil has joined the Hamilton team,” CEO Dermot O’Donohoe said.

“He brings a proven track record of consistent, profitable underwriting results as well as strong client and broker relationships worldwide,” O’Donohoe went on.

“As we welcome Neil on board, we extend our sincere gratitude to Trevor for the significant contribution he made to the development of our Lloyd’s platform.”
