Move increases reach to 13 European countries
DUAL Europe now has access to 13 countries as a result of the managing general agent’s move to set up a base in the Netherlands from which the company will service the Benelux market.
Leading DUAL Benelux is Peter Kegel, who will serve as managing director. Based in Rotterdam, the industry leader brings 38 years of experience to the post. His credentials include time spent at Aegon, a.s.r., and HDI Global.
“I am thrilled to become part of DUAL Europe’s already successful journey and to building on this success in Benelux with our local brokers,” said Kegel in a release. “Our partnership approach means we can also support those brokers by providing a range of investment solutions, combining a swift decision-making process with a high standard of service.
“Our goal is also to grow our Benelux team. DUAL’s strong people-first culture makes it a great place for colleagues to develop their talents.”
According to DUAL, its Benelux operations will initially offer financial lines, professional indemnity, cyber, and M&A-related (mergers and acquisitions) insurance solutions for both medium and large companies, before expanding its capabilities later this year with the addition of surety, fine art, construction, and healthcare/medical malpractice.
“We’re delighted to welcome Peter to the DUAL Europe team and to bring his considerable experience to our broker network in Benelux,” commented DUAL Europe chief executive Olaf Jonda. “Since we were founded in Madrid 25 years ago, DUAL Europe’s strategy has always been to deliver the best local underwriting expertise backed by the strength of our capacity provider partners.
“As an MGA, we are able to move swiftly to develop insurance solutions which are designed to meet today’s clients’ evolving needs, and we believe this makes a real difference in the fast-moving European market.”
Last month, DUAL Europe added key hires in Italy, Germany, and Spain.
