Price Forbes & Partners, part of the Ardonagh Group of companies, today announced four new appointments to the Power, Utility and Construction team.

Simon Howell joins from Marsh UK where he was a Managing Director and Placement Leader for Power and Utilities, and was a member of the Energy and Power Practice Executive Committee. With over 25 years’ experience in the insurance industry, Simon has a broad global perspective on insurers and delivering innovative client solutions. He has deep market knowledge and relationships across a broad spectrum of the market.

Simon is joined on the team by James Williams from JLT Specialty’s Energy Division. James has nearly twenty years’ experience in power, renewable and onshore energy accounts and he brings further experience having also worked at both Aon and Marsh. James brings in broad knowledge across the power sector, including downstream and midstream energy.

Also joining both Simon and James is David Cramphorn. David has over 13 years’ experience working as an account handler and broker specialising in Onshore Energy and Construction risks. Previously, David worked for Cooper Gay in their Non-Marine division, and was responsible for broking Worldwide Construction Risks before moving to Marsh, where he developed his client facing skills as an account handler for the Global Downstream Energy team. In 2015, David joined Miller Insurance Services to work within their Onshore Energy team as an account handler and broker for various International and US clients within the Oil and Gas, Chemical, Power/Utilities and Renewable sectors.

The team will be further strengthened by Charlotte Higgins, who will be joining the team from Miller later this month as Broker.

Simon Howell commented: “I’m delighted to be joining Price Forbes at an exciting time as the company accelerates growth plans, whilst maintaining their independent broker status and dedication to client service excellence. I am excited to be joining the team and look forward to building on the Price Forbes brand in our target markets.”

James Masterton CEO Price Forbes commented: “We are delighted to welcome Simon, James, David & Charlotte to such a leading team in the industry. They bring with them a wealth of knowledge and expertise which I firmly believe when combined with our existing strengths, will be extremely beneficial to our producers and clients.
