West of England P&I Club has announced two internal appointments in support of its wider product diversification strategy. Mark Mathews (pictured) has been appointed as Head of Product Development and Enam Hussain as Deputy Head of Product Development with immediate effect. Mark and Enam will also continue in their existing roles as Deputy Head of Underwriting (London) and Head of Claims (Eastern Team) respectively.

Mark Mathews has worked in the maritime industry for 41 years, the last 12 as a P&I underwriter. He also has extensive experience as a broker and working in claims. Enam is a qualified solicitor and has experience working in private practice with an international law firm. He has worked in P&I for the last 14 years and has handled some of the world’s largest major casualties.

Both have a detailed knowledge and understanding of West’s joint ventures – Qwest, Astaara and Nordic Marine Insurance – and will manage the commercial and servicing aspects of the diversification strategy. These appointments will strengthen the West’s relationships with its joint venture partners, as well as coordinate the way in which these businesses interact with the Club’s Members. This latter role will include liaison with West Fixed, managed by Damian Mustard, and West Offshore, which is overseen by Will Tobin.
