Price Forbes grows US Healthcare team
06 April 2021
We are delighted to announce the growth of our US Healthcare team with the appointment of Chris Brooking and Vicky Ivanova.
Chris joins from Tysers where he spent 2 years as Head of Healthcare and US Professions. He has 16 years’ underwriting experience from positions at Brit Insurance, where he established their healthcare portfolio, Barbican and Catlin.
Vicky also joins from Tysers where she was an Associate Director. She previously worked at AFL and RKH Specialty, at each in broking roles.
Price Forbes’ US healthcare team was established in October 2019 under the leadership of Managing Director Paul Voller who joined from JLT. The team places in the region of $100m GWP and forms part of Price Forbes’ 70-strong casualty pillar. Our specialists arrange wholesale insurance and reinsurance for medical malpractice for hospitals and physicians, professional liability for long term and correctional healthcare and cyber and other related insurance for healthcare providers.
Paul Voller commented: “After a successful first year at Price Forbes we’re delighted to be expanding the team with the appointment of Vicky and Chris. Chris has already established a great reputation with clients and insurers after making the transition from underwriter to broker and Vicky’s knowledge and capability in the long term care and miscellaneous med mal space, will strengthen our offering to US brokers in this area. We are committed to supporting them both and moving forward together as we help our clients navigate their way through this hard market and beyond. We see exciting times ahead”
Chris Brooking commented: “Joining a company that is independent with an excellent reputation and substantial scale was particularly important when considering where to continue my career, and I’m excited to join Price Forbes as its momentum continues.”
