Well-regarded underwriter, Louise Nevill, is moving to Gard, after more than 20 years in the Lloyd’s insurance market.

She is joining the Norwegian insurance group as a vice president, to lead its London-based underwriting team.

Nevill previously headed the Lloyd’s marine team of WR Berkley, that axed this operation last year, as it had failed to deliver an adequate return over a five year period.

She joined the US owned WR Berkley team in 2010, after a decade at Talbot Underwriting, where she rose from being a hull and war risks assistant to head of marine and energy.
