Miller boosts Marine team with senior appointment


Leading specialist (re)insurance broker Miller has announced the appointment of Andreas Bisbas as Chairman of Marine Mutual Reinsurance and Head of Mutual War within the Marine team. Andreas will join in late November 2023 and report into Phil Wheeler, Head of Marine at Miller.

Andreas joins Miller from his role as Managing Director of Tsakos Shipping (London) Ltd and Director of Argosy Insurance Company. In addition, Andreas has been an active member of a number of high-profile Marine Boards and Committees, including for the Britannia P&I Club, ITOPF, Maritime London and 10 years as Chairman of the International Chamber of Shipping’s Insurance Committee. His appointment will further strengthen Miller’s team responsible for the International Group of P&I Clubs, individual P&I Club reinsurance and War Mutual clients.

As part of the Marine team’s wider growth strategy, Stuart Williams, currently War Practice Leader, will become Head of New Business, Mutual War with immediate effect focussing on further growing Miller’s client base within the Mutual War sector.

The appointments continue the expansion of Miller’s Marine team and follow the recent additions of Nick Lockyer, Lee Bright and Craig Dennis to the Direct Marine team, and Pene Reuben to the Marine Liability Reinsurance team.

Phil Wheeler, Head of Marine at Miller, said: “We are delighted that Andreas has chosen to join Miller. He has very significant experience in all aspects of Marine Insurance, and excellent relationships at the most senior level within the International Group of P&I Clubs, the marine (re)insurance market and wider marine community. Andreas will further reinforce our high standards of client service and the subject matter expertise that we believe sets Miller apart.”
Andreas Bisbas commented: “I am very pleased to be joining Miller in this exciting role. I took the decision to change posts after eighteen immensely satisfying years at Tsakos Shipping and seek a new role within the industry which would enable me to contribute positively.

“By joining Miller, with its market leading position with the War Mutuals and the International Group of P&I Clubs and already high performing team, I am given the opportunity to work with the most prestigious clients whilst supporting an excellent and growing team”.
