RiskPoint Expands in the BeNeLux Region and Welcomes Two New Hires

We are happy to announce that our Dutch office is expanding with the hire of Jim Poelman and Mark van Osch.

Jim has joined our Renewable Energy team as a Senior Underwriter. He will focus on our Onshore Renewable Energy offering as well as ongoing projects and help with our Offshore Renewable Energy product on ad hoc basis.

Mark has stepped in as a Senior Underwriter to focus on our offering within Construction and Engineering, which means that we are now also able to provide our Construction insurance to the BeNeLux market.

The hire of Jim and Mark allow us to provide our current brokers with more possibilities. Besides our local M&A and Renewable Energy offering we are – as mentioned above – now also able to provide insurance within the construction scene. Maarten Liebrecht, Head of Benelux Renewable Energy, comments:

“I am very happy to welcome Jim and Mark to our office. With their huge experience, I am absolutely convinced they will strengthen the existing team, and we can start up with our new offering and support our expected growth on all lines of business.”

Jim and Mark bring a respective experience of 20+ and 30 years across a wide variety of domains such as loss adjustment, engineering, technical inspection, brokerage, reinsurance, and senior technical underwriting in the Dutch market. Both will be specialized in the Dutch business and cooperate to broker organizations or alternative distribution channels as well as to product development.

Peder Ledgaard Group Manager and Partner

We are very pleased to have two senior profiles like Jim and Mark joining us. They will help strengthen our offering and even expand our range of products within technical lines by also providing solutions for traditional Construction. This aligns with our overall strategies of positioning RiskPoint with expertise within our selected specialist areas.
