Markerstudy Insurance Services Limited has announced the appointment of Andy Squires as head of household underwriting, reporting to Will James, head of technical underwriting.

With a career in the insurance industry spanning over 30 years, Andy is a highly experienced executive with expertise across underwriting, pricing and distribution. Prior to joining Markerstudy, Andy was underwriting manager for Car Care Plan Insurance and has also held senior roles at RSA, Folgate, Towergate, Fortis/Ageas and Integra Insurance Solutions.

Will James comments: “It’s great to be able to bring someone of Andy’s experience and calibre into the team at a time when demand for senior underwriters far outstrips supply in our industry. Our strategy is to nurture and develop our homegrown talent, and senior appointments such as Andy are hugely beneficial to our mentoring programmes.”

Andy adds: “I am enjoying working alongside such an enthusiastic and talented underwriting team and also partnering with our pricing colleagues to ensure we continue to deliver market leading products. There is intense competition in the home insurance market, but we have an excellent suite of products and I’m confident that our proposition will benefit the broking community. Will painted a compelling picture of the opportunity at Markerstudy and I’m really looking forward to this next stage of my insurance career.”
