DUAL Asset Underwriting appoints Mark Dennis to lead new division
DUAL Asset Underwriting, the specialist asset protection division of The DUAL Group, is delighted to announce the appointment of industry veteran Mark Dennis, who will be joining this month (August 2015), to lead its new DUAL Residential Risks division, based in Norwich.
Mark has led the growth of the UK legal indemnities market since the 1990s, when he worked at Aviva and launched the first online offering. He moved to Countrywide nine years ago, where he established the legal indemnities business Isis.
Andrew Hillier MRICS, DUAL Asset Underwriting’s Executive Chairman said: “Our focus at DUAL Asset Underwriting has been specialist commercial property risks and developing our international offering. Only 18 months since its launch, DUAL Asset Underwriting now boasts a significant international reach, having already insured property in 18 countries worldwide. It is now the right time for us to focus on building a UK residential business to match this and we are thrilled that Mark has agreed to lead this proposition for us.”
“I’m delighted to be joining DUAL Asset Underwriting to build its UK residential proposition,” added Mark. “DUAL is a forward thinking and entrepreneurial business, with significant growth plans; this move will combine the best commercial and residential teams in the legal indemnities market.”
