Trident Marine Managers appoints Clarke Smith as director of underwriting

Trident Marine Managers (TMM) has appointed Clarke Smith as director of underwriting.

Smith has more than 30 years’ experience in the insurance industry, with a particular focus on the recreational marine space. He has worked in several different capacities, having worked in underwriting positions at a carrier, an MGU and a broker.

He is a former board member of the Association of Marina Industries and a member of the National Marine Manufacture Association risk management council.

TMM, a managing general underwriter for the specialty marine and offshore energy industries and a part of Ryan Specialty Group (RSG), has also opened a new office in Boston, MA, as the group seeks to expand its presence in the US market.

Jorge Pecci, head of RSG Underwriting Managers’ marine vertical, said: “[Smith’s] extensive product and industry knowledge combined with his many years of experience further solidifies our position in the Marine insurance industry at the right time.”
