Christopher Brown will lead underwriting policy for the UK Club with effect from 20th February 2009 in the new role of Director of Underwriting.

He is central to the claims analysis process that supports the Club's claims reserving activity. As part of this planned change in responsibilities, Mr Brown and Mr Wynn-Williams had worked closely together throughout the 2009 renewal to ensure a smooth handover of responsibilities.
