Specialist global insurer Ironshore International has named Mr William Lewis as its Australian MD.
Mr Lewis joined Ironshore in 2012 as Mergers and Acquisitions Manager in Sydney and was promoted to head the specialty business lines unit in 2016. He takes over the top Australian role from Ms Katherine Simmonds, who has left the company.
New York-based Ironshore was acquired by Liberty Mutual this year, with the $US3 billion ($4 billion) deal completed in early May.
Mr Lewis worked as a tax lawyer before joining Ironshore and specialised in private equity and mergers and acquisitions while working with PricewaterhouseCoopers.
