Canopius Group, a global specialty and property and casualty (re)insurer, has announced the immediate appointment of Chris Getty as Cyber and Technology Underwriter.

Getty will enhance Canopius’ cyber and technology capabilities and will report directly to Mike Shen, Head of Cyber & Technology for the London Market.

Shen added: “Chris is a highly regarded underwriter and leader who has quickly made a name for himself in the cyber market. Our cyber book in London has grown rapidly through a combination of expert underwriting, product innovation and diversification.”

“Maintaining this momentum requires bringing in market leading talent to complement our existing team. Chris is the ideal candidate to help us realise our ambitious growth plans while ensuring the exceptional standard and approach which our broking partners expect from Canopius. I am very pleased to welcome him to the team,” continued Shen.

With over nine years of experience in cyber insurance, Getty joins Canopius from Talbot Underwriting, where he was Head of Cyber and Technology, leading underwriting teams in London and New York. He started his career at Barlow Lyde & Gilbert LLP and is a qualified solicitor.

Getty commented: “What Canopius have done and are doing in Cyber is truly exciting. In an already innovative and highly technical class, Canopius are increasingly setting a new standard and their growth ambitions made this impossible to pass up. I am looking forward to getting started.”

This appointment is part of a recent series of hires in the Canopius Cyber and Technology division. Earlier this year, Sam Minshaw was appointed Cyber Claims Manager, Alex Fyfe joined as Cyber Claims Adjuster in March, and Catherine Sims was appointed Cyber Claims Adjuster in New York.
