This summary from international People Moves details recent appointments to three London-based brokers: BMS, Incepta (a subsidiary of Goldman Sachs-backed Aston Lark) and Oneglobal Broking.

An overview of these new employees follows here.

GBS, the London-based specialist insurance and reinsurance broker, announced the appointment of: Mark Aylward as managing director of the newly structured London Delegated Underwriting Authority (DUA) and Programs division, to lead BMS' expansion in the industry, primarily in the US.

He will join BMS upon completion of his current contractual obligations and will report to: Hannah Watkins, director, BMS Re.

Aylward has over 20 years of experience in the delegated authority market. Most recently, he served as director of the North American and International real estate team at Tysers.

“Last year we brought together our expertise in reinsurance and insurance DUA as one team. The DUA space continues to evolve, as do the needs of our cover holders — from alternative structures to analytics to implementing cross-class strategies," said Watkins.

“To do this successfully, we offer a holistic approach to our clients, working closely with our program experts in our US reinsurance business,” she added.


Aston Lark, the insurance brokerage firm backed by Goldman Sachs, announced the appointment of: Robert Beere as director of Lloyd's broker, Incepta, a subsidiary of Aston Lark.

Well known in the insurance market and with 23 years of experience, Beere is a Lloyd's and London market broker specializing in property and parcels. He joins Aston Lark from JLT/Marsh, where he has worked for the past 15 years, most recently as Regional Director for London Market Risks. Before that, he worked as a real estate agent for Aon for four years.

Beere will be tasked with driving the group's property and casualty business in London Market, both in terms of supporting the group's own placement requirements and expanding the distribution of third-party wholesale brokers.

Incepta, acquired by the Aston Lark Group in August 2020, is an established Lloyd's wholesale broker with an appetite for commercial activity in the UK, developed through successful underwriting binders and effective open market brokerage. Incepta specializes in providing real estate, accident and professional liability compensation solutions in the London market to regional brokers, with a focus on high service standards and market expertise.

Current Incepta Directors Paul Smith and Clive Gilbert will leave the company in the summer.


Oneglobal brokerage, the London-based broker, announced the appointment of Mark Jenner as chairman of Energy.

With over 30 years of experience in the energy insurance industry, Jenner comes over from Howden where he was executive director of the energy division.

Jenner will join Oneglobal once he has fulfilled his contractual obligations to his current employer.
