Dom Peters, active underwriter at Dale Underwriting Partners, has left the carrier, with Ian Bridge, deputy active, stepping in to succeed him.

Peters joined Dale in January 2021 and has helped Syndicate 1729 grow from £185mn ($236mn) of stamp capacity to £350mn.

Bridge started his career in reinsurance at Syndicate 939, before moving to Syndicate 1227, set up to reinsure the liabilities of Orphan Syndicates.

In 1998, he went to work with Syndicate 1239 on their worldwide direct and facultative portfolio, which was eventually merged into Markel Syndicate 3000.

In 2003, he left to take over the Faraday direct and facultative property account, where he was latterly head of property insurance.

Duncan Dale, founder and CEO of Dale, said: “Ian has been with us at Dale for nearly 10 years, and his experience in the market will be of great importance for the company as we look to continue to develop and execute our strategic growth plans.”

Of his appointment, Bridge added: “I’m proud to be given the opportunity to be active underwriter for Dale at a time of significant development for the company. This is a very exciting time for myself and Dale, and I’m looking forward to continuing to help execute on the business’s strategy.

“Everyone at Dale would like to thank Dominic Peters for all his hard work whilst at Dale and wish him every continued success for the future.”

In March, Dale Holdings, the parent company of Dale Syndicate 1729, appointed John Chambers, John Hastings-Bass and Clare Hennings as independent non-executive directors to the board.

Chambers, who has more than 30 years’ experience, including 19 at Aegis, will serve as chair of the group risk and underwriting committee, while Hennings, former director of investments at Prudential (now M&G), will chair the group investment committee.

Hastings-Bass has held the roles of chairman at the Dale Managing Agency Limited (DMAL) board, and chairman of the DMAL board remuneration and nomination committee since 2022.

Six months prior to the trio of board appointments, the carrier named Preben Prebensen as independent non-executive chair of the group board.
