Insurance broker Arthur J Gallagher has appointed JLT Specialty’s Stuart Hill as director of global mining and property.

Hill will be based in London and report to Neil Stewart, managing director of global and corporate, which provides cross-class risk and insurance support to corporate businesses on a global basis.

Hill’s role is effective immediately and he will focus on business development, client servicing, account management and placement to further enhance Gallagher’s offering.

Hill was previously a partner in JLT Specialty’s mining practice, having joined the firm in 2010. He has client experience stretching from Africa to Latin America and Australia.

Commenting on the move, Stewart says: “Stuart is a great strategic hire for us, enabling us to build out our core strengths in terms of experience and expertise, and further enhance our offering for international mining and property clients — wherever they are based.”
