Specialist renewable energy insurer GCube has recruited two new senior team members to drive its future expansion plans.

Steve Allen and Adam Hearn have been appointed to the posts of director and senior underwriter, respectively, at the company’s London office. They both join from RSA Group, where Allen served as engineering, construction and renewable energy director, and Hearn had over 20 years of experience as an underwriter in the power and engineering sectors, specialising in renewable energy.

At GCube, Allen will be responsible for expanding the underwriting platform across new classes and defining the global growth strategy for new territories. Hearn’s focus will be on solar and wind energy in the emerging markets, as the business continues to expand its London-based team in support of the project developers, asset owners and investors driving the growth of renewable energy in new territories around the world.

“Steve and Adam’s respective track records and the breadth of their experience in the space speaks for itself, and we’re looking forward to welcoming them to what is already a dynamic underwriting team,” says GCube CEO Fraser McLachlan.

GCube underwrites a portfolio that encompasses over 85GW of renewable energy assets worldwide. In addition to the appointment of Allen and Hearn, the firm has recently made further hires at its New York and Newport Beach offices in the US.
