15 November 2021, London | EmergIn Risk (EmergIn), a Ryan Specialty Group managing general underwriter, is excited to announce that it is further strengthening its Cyber, Technology, and Media underwriting capabilities with the addition of George Paraskeva. George joins EmergIn as Practice Leader in the London office and will help drive the continued upward trajectory of the business in the large and complex cyber-risk space.
George brings a diverse background of experience in both cyber insurance and the wider cybersecurity industry. As well as holding senior positions in the insurance market since October 2014, George also worked as an integral part of BAE Systems’ cybersecurity practice where he advised clients – including financial services institutions, Critical National Infrastructure (CNI), and multi-national defense contractors – on the development and implementation of their Cyber Security Programmes.
Jamie Bouloux, CEO of EmergIn, commented, “We are delighted to welcome George into EmergIn; his background, expertise, and market following are not only invaluable in managing the London practice, but to the wider EmergIn franchise as we continue to navigate the current market cycle. George’s appointment is a great credit to all those who have worked tirelessly to build our brand, and we are excited for how he will help to shape our future!”
To coincide with George’s arrival, EmergIn also announced the successful agreement of their new binder, running from 31 July. RenaissanceRe will continue to lead the program, having been involved since our formation in 2016.
EmergIn are superbly positioned to assist with both new business and renewals without concerns around premium income limits or capacity issues restricting the ability to deploy capital.
EmergIn are also pleased to announce the promotion of Peter Williams to the newly created role of Distribution Lead. In the role, Peter draws on his 11 years’ experience in the London insurance market where his skills developed first as a broker, and then as an underwriter – including having been with EmergIn from the beginning. Peter will help propel EmergIn’s offering to meet the needs of Cyber, Technology E&O, and Media placements in what remains one of the most dynamic and complex areas of insurance. As a focal point for broker relationships, Peter’s position is to drive strategy and ensure a unified approach in delivering risk transfer solutions to the market.
