“I’m pleased to welcome Neil to Brit, and look forward to him helping expand our UK property presence,” Matthew Wilson, Brit CEO, said in the statement. “His track record as a broker of working with both insurers and clients to develop bespoke and innovative solutions will prove valuable experience.”
