Astaara names Howard Potter as head of marine cyber

Astaara, the Guernsey-based marine insurance and risk assessment firm, has appointed Howard Potter as its new head of marine cyber.

Potter has more than 25 years’ industry experience and joins from London-based RSA Group where he was global product director for marine.

He spent 17 years working at CNA Maritime, both in London and Canada, and started his insurance career as a graduate trainee in the Institute of London Underwriters trading room.

Potter said: ‘This is the perfect time to be joining Astaara when risk is increasing exponentially, and solutions are needed. The company’s approach to cyber solutions is refreshing and has an offering not seen elsewhere.”
