Landmark Underwriting are delighted to announce Christopher White as our new Head of Professional Indemnity for Australia and Canada with immediate effect. 

Christopher has spent a number of years at Lloyd’s of London where he built his underwriting experience with roles at Hamilton, Barbican and Canopius. 

He has joined Landmark to support our ambitious, but controlled, growth plans for 2022 and onwards by overseeing the implementation and development of professional indemnity solutions for our international clients and brokers.

He will work closely with Kate Albert, our new Head of Professional Indemnity for the U.K. and Europe, who will be joining us in early January 2022.    

Discussing Landmark Underwriting’s continual exciting growth plans from 2021 into 2022, David Ratledge, Landmark Underwriting’s Managing Director, said: “At Landmark Underwriting, we continue to build and offer our existing products to our broker market through our professional underwriting service ethos. This has recently been instrumental in us securing our own MGA Chartered Status. We also want to ensure that we will continue to give comfort to our existing brokers, as our new board and management teams build upon our previous ability to provide a sensible approach to underwriting and helping our brokers to assist their clients through our dynamic MGA.”

He said, “Christopher has shown a great deal of commitment and understanding of Professional Indemnity, with over 20 years experience, that will complement our capacity and offering to the market”. 

Commenting on his new role, Christopher White said: “The Landmark model has allowed for flair and creativity, so joining Landmark Underwriting creates a massive opportunity for me to develop within their exciting vision, bringing the existing Professional Indemnity products to the marketplace with flexibility and speed that the management team is known”.

He continued,” Landmark’s established plans to continue their growth in the U.K. and Australia, plus now in Europe and Canada shows that we are on an exciting trajectory through the shareholders investing in talent for both the brand and expanding our client base. I look forward to working closely with Kate and David to build the controlled growth in Landmark’s Professional Indemnity teams”. 

We at Landmark welcome Christopher into his new role, helping us achieve all of our exciting plans for the future of the MGA.
