Colin Snell has been recruited to SCB’s underwriting department to support the club’s European and North American business.  An English lawyer by training, Colin has extensive experience in P&I, having earlier occupied senior positions with other major International Group P&I Clubs in London and New York.  As vice president, working closely with Stuart Todd and his colleagues, Colin’s role will reflect his broad international experience, together with his local knowledge of the US market.

SCB has also announced the recent recruitment of Tony Smith as vice president and principal surveyor.  Tony’s duties will extend to those previously undertaken by John Poulson who has moved into a more generalist role at Atlantic Marine Associates Inc., a sister company of SCB.  However, in that role, John’s services nevertheless remain fully at the disposal of the club and its members.
