North P&I Club said it has appointed Simon Main as Technical Director (Underwriting), as part of the company's strategy for the development of the North P&I and Sunderland Marine (SMI) businesses.
Main joins North P&I with experience from several senior leadership positions at Thomas Miller, most recently in his role as Chief Operating Officer (COO) at the UK P&I Club.
Thya Kathiravel, North P&I's Deputy Global Director (Underwriting), said, "Following a strong performance by the Club at the 2018 renewal, we remain focused on achieving the strategic targets set by the Board and welcome the industry knowledge and experience that Simon brings to our underwriting department."
According to North P&I, Main’s appointment is an important element of its growth and diversification plans. As North P&I enters a crucial phase in the establishment of its EU subsidiary, Main will also play a key supporting role in the delivery of North's strategy, and the underwriting of North and Sunderland Marine's future EEA business.
