Beazley Restructures North American Property Teams

BI - August 4, 2022 - Beazley PLC said Wednesday it has restructured its large commercial property, Canadian, and excess and surplus lines property teams to create a single North American commercial property team that will be supported by four regional hubs.

Beazley said Robert Sadlier, former E&S property underwriting officer with Liberty Mutual Insurance Co. unit Ironshore Inc., joins the company as its Chicago-based central regional leader.

The three other regional leaders, who were already with Beazley, are: Ashely Irwin, New York-based northeast regional leader; Reid Jaffe, Atlanta-based southeast regional leader; and Tim Carlin, San Francisco-based western regional leader.

Mike Cooper, who is based in Atlanta, was named to the new role of property product leader, Beazley said in its statement.

All teams will report to Matt Westhoff, New York-based head of North American commercial property.
