Chaucer, the specialist Lloyd’s insurance group, has formed the market-leading team of Graham Hooper and Bryan Rettmann to head the development of its new freight forwarder and logistics insurance unit. Graham and Bryan are the latest additions to Chaucer’s growing range of specialty solution teams for brokers and clients.
Graham, based in London, and Bryan, based in Miami and working for Hanover Specialty Insurance Brokers, Inc., a Hanover Insurance Group subsidiary with coverholder status for Lloyd’s, will together provide an international partnership for new freight forwarder and logistics solutions. The new Team will also work closely with The Hanover’s inland marine unit, which provides a range of related solutions in areas such as Motor Truck Cargo, Warehousing, and Shipper’s Interest.
Graham Hooper and Bryan Rettmann are both highly experienced and respected international underwriters. Graham joins Chaucer from TT Club, a leading developer of online logistics, trade and cargo insurance solutions, where he was Senior Cargo Underwriter and Thomas Miller Director in London. Bryan joins from the American International Group, where he was Vice President of the Global Marine Division and Logistics Product Line Leader for North America.
