BMS expands US facultative team with senior hires

BMS Group (“BMS”), the independent specialist (re)insurance broker, today announced the hires of Denny Miller and Jessica Howard as Vice Presidents in BMS’s US facultative division, effective immediately.

As BMS continues to build out its US facultative business, Miller and Howard will focus on developing the team’s technological and analytical capabilities. The growing division is also in the process of building a new facultative platform to enhance efficiency and optimize coverage.

Miller joins BMS from Willis Towers Watson, where he was a senior property broker since 2015. There, he specialized in property insurance placement and exposure analysis. Miller has also gained experience in the US casualty and property market as a property broker at Lockton and Marsh.

Howard has over 10 years’ casualty brokerage experience. Prior to joining BMS, she was assistant vice president at Willis Towers Watson, managing multiple lines of casualty insurance portfolios. Between 2010 and 2019, she held a range of senior positions at AmWINS Insurance Brokerage and Liberty Mutual Insurance.

Pete Chandler, President and CEO of BMS’s US reinsurance arm, said: “The personalized service and analytical approach of BMS differentiate us from the rest of the market and help our clients achieve outstanding results. Our facultative team has been working closely with our treaty and capital advisory team to deliver comprehensive solutions that help clients meet their goals.
We understand the importance of analytical tools in designing facultative solutions, and therefore continue to grow our team and bring in specialists with backgrounds in market-leading technology and tools. Earlier this year, Rich Macrane and Larry Broadnax joined BMS to lead the US facultative team and we have continued to invest to develop BMS’s facultative business. Denny and Jessica will contribute a wealth of property and casualty experience to the team and we look forward to developing our new facultative platform with them.”
