Liberty Specialty Markets (LSM), part of Liberty Mutual Insurance Group, has entered the casualty market in Italy for the first time, recruiting Paolo Pitton to lead the initiative.
Based in Milan, Pitton joins from Chubb Europe, where he was deputy casualty manager.
Antonio Sacchi, Liberty Specialty Market’s General Manager for Italy, said: “Since we launched in Italy in 2012, we’ve been steadily growing our presence, now reaching 35 people in our Milan office. We’re now adding a local underwriting capability in casualty, which is of real strategic importance to our clients, allowing us to offer a broader range of solutions in the Italian market.
“Paolo has a tremendous track record. He’s highly experienced with a strong knowledge of the market. He’s also very well-known in our market.”
Paolo Pitton has 18 years’ experience in the insurance sector, beginning his career with Lloyd’s broker WBA in 2000. He subsequently held senior roles with RSA, AIG Europe, Chartis and QBE.
