PIB Group, Insurance, FinTech, UKInsurTech PIB Group has appointed Charles Burgess as CEO for Underwriting & Schemes. His appointment strengthens the Group’s executive team and international ambitions to build a specialist and diversified pan-European insurance distribution business.

Ryan Brown, Deputy CEO of PIB Group, said, “I am absolutely delighted to welcome Charlie to PIB Group and to our Executive team. He joins us with international MGA experience across many continents, as well as significant digital and insurtech expertise. Charlie has an entrepreneurial mindset which will see him building on and broadening PIB’s MGA capability out into Europe, as well as exploring innovative opportunities within the digital space to expand our schemes proposition.”

The dual role will extend across the Underwriting division which is composed of specialist MGA including Q Underwriting and Acquinex, plus the Schemes & Affinities division. This division is home to PIB’s UK non-advised, non-standard SME and personal lines schemes including Fish Insurance, Balens, Jigsaw, Morton Michel, and Thistle Insurance.

Burgess is a senior executive and board member with a career of over 30 years. He has a strong track record in establishing new businesses and start-ups and in successfully growing established businesses,  leading large international functions, as well as providing consultancy for blue-chip customers in the insurance, reinsurance, and broker markets. He is also a qualified accountant.

On his appointment, Burgess said, “This is an exciting time to be joining PIB Group as its international expansion continues at pace. The opportunity to draw on two distinct disciplines in both distribution and digital will be hugely satisfying.  I will look to leverage these skills to develop Underwriting and Schemes whilst PIB continues to grow its brokerage both domestically and abroad. My exposure to PIB has been motivating, the management team drive, and collaborative and entrepreneurial culture is what first attracted me to PIB.”

Burgess joins from Munich Re Specialty Group (MRSG) after seven years, most notably holding the position of CEO for International Distribution where he was responsible for MRSG’s wholly-owned MGAs, brokers, and Syndicate Service companies in the UK, Europe, Asia, Middle East and North America.
