iprism’s Managing Director Ian Lloyd said:
“Since joining the business a little over a year and half ago, Aaron has played a significant role in our underwriting oversight and management. He has an excellent reputation in the London market and this promotion reflects his newly expanded role and responsibilities. I hope he will also play a key role in achieving our future growth ambitions.”
Aaron Woodhams added:
“I’m pleased to be able to bring my experience and network to the new role and am looking forward to working more closely with Ian and our senior team. I’m focused on delivering profitable underwriting results for our insurer partners, underpinned by the technology-enabled iprism platform.”
Woodhams will also take on delegated authority underwriting and insurer relationship responsibilities from iprism’s Underwriting Director Gary Johnson, whose role will now focus on more technical aspects such as policy wordings, documentation and claims.
