60 seconds with … Andrew McMellin

This month, Clare Nash, Director at Norman Broadbent Group interviews Andrew McMellin, ex CEO of Pioneer Underwriters. Having started his career 30+ years ago as a broker, Andrew went on to have a successful career in underwriting including working in the Lloyd’s market, growing and managing global teams with various underwriting and general leadership roles, both in the UK and US.

Of all your experiences and achievements in the industry to date, which are you most proud of and why?

I am fortunate to have had two great experiences, both very different. Firstly I’m very proud of my recent role at Pioneer as group CEO, and of the team there. We completed a complex sale in three tranches through the COVID lockdown, which in itself threw up a number of challenges.
