LMA Marine Committee election

Three new members have joined Lloyd's Market Association’s (LMA) Marine Committee following a recent ballot of Lloyd’s managing agents.

James McDonald (Global Head of Marine and Energy at Talbot), Richard Tomlin (Class Underwriter for Marine Property at Atrium) and Simon Mason (Head of Energy, Apollo), along with seven re-elected members, will serve a term of two years. Peter McIntosh, Senior Underwriter, Marine and Energy at Ark Syndicate, will continue as Committee Chair.

The LMA Marine Committee provides leadership and direction to the Lloyd’s marine underwriting community and advises the LMA Board on strategic matters relating to marine business.

Priorities for the year ahead include addressing the cyber gap which is the gap between what the PRA may require in this area and current market practice. At the same time it will assist the market in relation to its understanding of cyber exposure and coverage issues.

Neil Roberts, Head of Marine, LMA said: "I am pleased to welcome James MacDonald, Richard Tomlin and Simon Mason to the committee. Their combined knowledge and experience of the market will be an invaluable asset. The high standard of candidates putting themselves forward has enabled us to assemble an impressive committee of highly respected experts and leaders in the marine market".
