HB Underwriting welcomes new Managing Director to the team

We are thrilled to announce Kyle Lomas as our new Managing Director. He joins us from Victor Insurance UK and will support our ambitious growth plans. 

Before joining the HB Underwriting team, Kyle spent a number of years at NIG FarmWeb overseeing the underwriting of both Commercial and Agricultural business, working with brokers across the country. At Victor Insurance, he went on to develop and implement a new Farm Combined and Farm Motor agricultural product set for the Insurer.

Growth on the horizon    

Kyle’s move to HB Underwriting will see him head up our operations, develop our sales and distribution strategy, create new products for a variety of sectors and develop new and existing insurer relationships. Kyle will oversee the whole HB Underwriting team, reporting directly to Chairman, Sean McClarron.

Discussing HB Underwriting’s exciting growth plans, Sean said: “At HB Underwriting, we want to continue to build and offer unique products to the broker market that offer something truly different for the end-client. We also want to ensure we maintain our pragmatic approach to underwriting and claims, helping brokers to assist their clients, and write more business in the process.”

He said Kyle’s career thus far has shown a great deal of commitment and understanding of the agricultural insurance market and whilst HB Underwriting has its sights set beyond just agriculture, that he has the experience and knowledge to “help us deliver new products that can make a real difference to brokers in the ever-changing market place”.

Commenting on his new role, Kyle said: “The MGA model allows for flair and creativity, so joining HB Underwriting creates a massive opportunity for me to bring new products to the market with agility and speed. I am very excited to be leading the team and developing it into becoming a major player in the MGA space.

“We’ll be working very quickly to add new products to the existing suite, underpinning all that we do with a strengthened distribution capability and strategy, harnessing rapport, confidence and trust in the niche areas that we choose to operate in.”

We look forward to welcoming Kyle into the team and for an exciting next chapter for HB Underwriting – watch this space.
