Kane appoints captive expert to US business development team

Monica Everett has joined Kane, the largest global independent insurance manager, as business development director. Everett joins from Willis Insurance, North America, where she focused on large captive accounts. She will be joined by new hire Hannah Hayes, who will serve as business development associate.

Everett will be primarily responsible for building customer relationships and identifying new business opportunities, working with teams in the US, Bermuda and Cayman.

Hayes will support the business development directors, liaising with existing and prospective clients, researching market opportunities and developing new relationships.

Hinshelwood, group CEO of Kane, said: “the continued expansion of our US operations and our US client base is a priority for Kane. In a highly competitive market, strengthening our business development team with two new hires further enhances our ability to deliver insurance management products precisely tailored to the changing needs of clients.”

Carlos Oliveras, CEO and managing director of Kane USA, concluded: “we are delighted that two highly skilled professionals are joining our business development team. Over her 30-year insurance career, Monica has developed a deep knowledge of the risk requirements of a broad range of clients and has become a trusted risk advisor. She has been the lead broker on several group captive programs. Her extensive sill set and considerable experience will prove a key asset.”
