Consilium, the global specialty re/insurance broking arm of the Aventum Group, has appointed two seasoned veterans from the property and casualty (P&C) industry to enhance expertise within this division.

James Williams, an experienced broker, is one of Consilium’s key hires. He will lead the Property Insurance for the company’s Natural Resources and Mining offering.

Bringing over 20 years of industry experience to Consilium, Williams joins from Price Forbes & Partners, where he held the position of Director for six years. Before that, he served as a Partner at Jardine Lloyd Thompson for seven years, and he has also worked at renowned firms such as Marsh and Aon.

In addition, industry veteran Steven Taylor has been appointed to lead Consilium’s Global Casualty team.

Taylor brings over 15 years’ experience in the global casualty market, with a focus on North America. Prior to joining Consilium, he served as Howden London’s Divisional Director and held positions as partner at McGill & Partners and a Casualty Team Leader at Aon London.

James Baird, Co-CEO at Consilium, expresses his enthusiasm for these appointments, stating, “Consilium continues to attract the market’s leading talent because we’re independent and entrepreneurial.”

“We’re really excited to have James and Steven on board. These complex P&C risks, often in heavy industries, demand bespoke coverage and specialist service. Their combined experience will create significant opportunity for us and further accelerate Consilium’s growth,” Baird adds.

Expanding into complementary lines is a significant focus for Consilium’s growth strategy. Over the past year, the brokerage has successfully launched a new North American Property team led by ex-Gallagher Director Jack Anderson. With the recent additions of Global Casualty and Natural Resources divisions, Consilium aims to rapidly expand its presence in these sectors, with further hires expected later in the year.
