The renewables underwriting team at Markel has been expanded

Charlie Richardson and Sarah McCarthy, who previously worked at GCube, are among the new hires.

Markel International has added three new members to its renewable energy team.

Charlie Richardson (shown), Sarah McCarthy, and Yong Ruay Heah are the newcomers.

Richardson’s primary responsibilities as head of renewable energy underwriting will include developing and implementing an underwriting strategy to expand and develop Markel’s presence in the renewable energy market, with a particular focus on the London market.

He will also be a major decision maker for the class of business and line sizes the organization deploys in the future, with Tom Baker and Rohan Davies.

Richardson has 23 years of insurance experience, including underwriting positions with renewable energy experts like GCube Underwriting Limited.

“I’m delighted to get in front of brokers and insureds, and to continue building on the wonderful work Markel has done by accelerating it and advancing the company toward being one of the most recognized industry leaders in renewable energy,” Richardson said.

McCarthy will join the team as an underwriter and will be in charge of expanding the onshore renewable book globally, as well as strengthening new and existing broker connections.

McCarthy, like Richardson, was previously employed at GCube Underwriting Limited.

Both of the new hires will work out of Markel’s London headquarters.

Heah recently joined Markel International’s Singapore office as an assistant underwriter, where he will work on expanding and servicing a renewable energy portfolio of clients throughout Asia Pacific.

Heah comes to us from Aon, an insurance brokerage.
