AG Cover, the independent London Market insurance broker, has appointed Paul Cole into its P&I (Protection and Indemnity) team. Paul brings a wealth of experience to AG, with his past roles including 13 years at Aon Risk Solutions, followed by 6 years at marine brokerage BMS Harris & Dixon, where he served as a Director.
Cole’s appointment is part of AG’s commitment to continued expansion and investment into both its marine and non-marine capabilities. Paul has worked for 23 years in the P&I and marine liability sector, beginning his career in the underwriting department of a P&I Club where he worked for 5 years before moving into broking.
For the past 18 years, Cole has worked on the design and placement of P&I, charterers liability and marine liability programmes for shipowners worldwide across all marine industry sectors, developing an excellent understanding of shipowners’ insurance requirements and the markets best able to competitively provide such coverage.
Simon Parsliffe, COO at AG, said:
“Paul is a key addition to the AG team as we continue to invest in growth and identifying experienced talent in the industry that can bring something different to us. Paul will significantly boost our P&I expertise and strength in depth, and our clients will benefit from that.”
Paul Cole at AG said:
“AG is a respected independent brand in the marketplace and I’m confident that I’ll be able to add a lot of value to AG and help the company to meet its strategic objectives. P&I is a key area of focus for AG and we’re looking to develop our client base in this area of the market as we move into 2018.”
