Independent specialist re/insurance broker BMS Group has appointed Alison Schwab, Russell Williams and Robert Thomas to its energy division.

Mr Williams specialises in general casualty and energy liability within the Bermuda market. In the past, he had served as head of specialty at RK Harrison and was previously a managing director at JLT Specialty Bermuda.

BMS said the hiring of Mr Williams continues the expansion of the BMS Bermuda market operations alongside George Bowring and Kian Wookey.

Ms Schwab has 20 years of experience in the US and London insurance markets. Mr Thomas specialises in the thermal power and renewable energy fields, areas he has focused on throughout his career, which began in 2008.

She and Mr Williams will join new arrival Mr Thomas following completion of their current contractual obligations in July and November, respectively. They will report to James Chicken, managing director of BMS Energy, and Duncan Hayward, head of energy casualty.

Mr Chicken said: “We are determined to attract the best talent to BMS Energy to ensure we continue to excel for our clients in these challenging times and deliver a broad access to markets in London, Europe and Bermuda.”
