Carrie Kelley has joined Ed Broking, the newly-arrived multiline broker in Bermuda.

Ed is a global reinsurance, wholesale and specialty broker, which announced last month the opening of its operations in Hamilton, after being giving regulatory approval.

Ms Kelley has been appointed executive vice-president, head of property insurance, Bermuda. She will report to Chris Bonard, chief executive officer of Ed Broking’s Bermuda platform.

Ms Kelley has more than 16 years of industry experience and was previously with Barbican Underwriting Bermuda, where she was underwriter of the property D&F portfolio.

She has held roles with Bowring Marsh Bermuda, Guy Carpenter Bermuda, and Marsh USA.

Mr Bonard said: “We are delighted to have added a producer with Carrie’s market experience and profile to our new Bermuda operation.

“She has an excellent track record working with complex multinational accounts from the North American Fortune 1000 and was instrumental in the development of a middle-market book of business new to the island.

“She has solid relationships both with clients and the local underwriting community, which will be invaluable as we build out Ed’s independent wholesale broking platform in Bermuda to give our clients access to a marketplace they had not been fully utilising.”

Ms Kelley said: “Bermuda is an important market that I’ve worked in for many years and know well. Ed is building a new and different operation which will strongly appeal to clients. I am excited to be building a new business and bringing new pipelines of business to the Bermuda market.”

Last month, Ed said that opening in Bermuda underpinned its commitment to existing and potential clients, particularly in the US, Canada, and the Caribbean.
