Hiscox pays tribute to late mariner Mike Southgate
Hiscox has paid tribute to divisional director for marine, energy and construction Mike Southgate, who has passed away.
The underwriter joined Hiscox in 2020, leading one of the carrier’s best performing teams through a period of strong rating and profit growth.
During his career in the marine market, Southgate held a number of senior underwriting positions, including head of marine and energy at Canopius, as well as roles at Sturge Syndicate, Aon, Swiss Re, and Montpellier Syndicate.
“Mike has made a significant contribution to the insurance industry and will be deeply missed by his colleagues and friends,” Hiscox said in a statement.
“Our thoughts are with his family at this difficult time and we offer them our heartfelt condolences.”
