LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, July 16, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Beazley has today opened its first office in Miami and tenth in the United States. The new office will focus on the development of reinsurance business from Latin America. The move is part of Beazley's growth plans and follows the recent hire of Paul Felfle to develop business in the region.
Mr Felfle, who joined Beazley in May this year, has over 20 years experience in the Miami based reinsurance sector, most recently as managing director and head of Aon Benfield Analytics Latin America.
Patrick Hartigan, head of Beazley's reinsurance division, said: "Miami has been growing as a hub for Latin American business and clients are becoming increasingly sophisticated with their analysis and research. We recognised the need to have a local presence in the city, enabling us to respond to the needs of our clients and build long term relationships."
