Miller WSIA under-40 group representatives champion London
The event schedule includes a peer-to-peer session on “The Evolving London Market,” during which a panel of London-based U40s will share their perspective on technology and its impact on the communication stream within the distribution channel, building a network and exchanging ideas from across the pond.
WSIA’s U40 is designed to develop insurance professionals who are currently employed by a WSIA member firm, and under the age of 40, through education, networking and leadership opportunities.
The team will be joining other young wholesale, specialty and surplus lines industry young professionals at the annual meeting.
We expect London market conditions to be a hot topic and the team will be on hand to share their expertise and answer members’ questions.

Wishing you the very best of luck Georgina!
Oliver Lombard on Houston Mariners panel
Oliver Lombard from our Cargo team recently spoke at the Houston Marine & Energy Insurance Conference. This annual conference has been taking place in Houston since 1965 (54 years!).
Oliver was part of a distinguished panel on ‘Reinventing Supply Chain Risk Management’, speaking to a captivated audience at the Westin Galleria Hotel.
Several major incidents have disrupted the supply chains of global manufacturers and managers of construction projects in recent years, including the Hanjin bankruptcy, Tsunamis in Japan and natural catastrophes across the US/Caribbean and Asia.
As a result, it is becoming increasingly relevant for these manufacturers & project managers to investigate various ways to mitigate the risks of ‘supply chain disruption’, including risk exposure analysis, in-depth contractual review and procuring insurance to transfer this risk.
The panel discussed the different ways to conduct these steps, including finding hidden or missed perils and crafting bespoke insurance programs to mitigate the risks inherent in an operation’s supply chain, regardless if local or global.
