Specialist (re)insurer BMS has appointed James Botsis as vice president in its property & casualty team in Chicago.

Prior to his appointment at BMS, Botsis held the position of assistant vice president at Towers Watson in Chicago for 11 years.

BMS said Botsis’ appointment is an important step towards growing both the property and casualty team and the company’s broking business.

Robin Greville Williams, managing director of property and casualty, said: “James has a track record for excellent client service, a strong business development capability and is an agriculture specialist, which makes him exactly the type of reinsurance broker we want to invest in as we expand our team.”
