Beazley has announced the appointment of Santiago Jaramillo as Engineering Focus Group Leader for the U.S. and Latin America.
Based in Miami, Mr. Jaramillo will be responsible for building Beazley’s portfolio in the U.S. and will report directly to Colin Rose, Head of Construction and Engineering.
Mr Jaramillo will also be supported by an underwriter, also based in Miami, and will have the builders’ risk teams in San Francisco and Atlanta reporting to him, effective August 1, 2017.
Mr. Rose said: “Since Santiago joined us in 2016, it was clear that, with his extensive experience and knowledge of the U.S. and Latin American markets, he would play a pivotal role in the development of our specialist construction and engineering portfolio in both the U.S., where we are well established, and in Latin America where we have ambitious plans to grow.
“This is a key position and I am delighted that we have been able to draw on Beazley’s depth of talent to lead and grow our portfolio in these important markets.”
