Commenting on the announcement, James Begley, Chief Operating Officer for Oxford Insurance Group, stated: “In addition to creating a combined, rebranded platform for our entities under the Oxford Insurance Group name, we are introducing a new slogan, ‘Together. For our clients.’ As ever, our primary focus is that our clients continue to benefit from our deep expertise and the strong backing of our parent.”
Randall Goss, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer for U.S. Risk Insurance Group, said: “Now is the time for us to create a bigger impact in London. Our people are entrepreneurial and ambitious – our new platform is set to expand our broking and underwriting operations in the U.K. and international markets. We remain acquisitive and committed to hiring the best talent in the market. The business employs 127 people and we’re set to expand. A swathe of fresh hires includes a Marine & Energy team headed up by Mark Rowland, Ramsay Nicoll and Charles Reid. This team is further enhanced by the recent addition of David Gosnell, with Philip Lundberg joining Oxford to provide onshore energy expertise.
