Torus, subsidiary of Bermuda-based Torus Insurance Holdings Limited, announced the appointment of Tim Fillingham as the UK Chief Operating Officer for Torus UK. He will be responsible for ensuring superior service delivery to clients and brokers accessing the London and UK markets, and maintain relationships with UK-based brokers.

In addition to this regional role, he retains global responsibility for all marketing and corporate communications activities, part of his previous role as Torus’ chief marketing officer. Fillingham reports to European COO Dermot O’Donohoe and to Global COO Naveen Anand.

“We have ambitious strategic goals for Torus and therefore need to stay close to the local markets to ensure that we offer the level of service that buyers and brokers require, whilst developing our business profitably,” Fillingham said. “Having previously been within the brokerage community, I am acutely aware of the importance of delivering consistently high levels of performance.”

Prior to joining Torus in January 2008, Fillingham was chairman of Aon Natural Resources, in the UK. He originally joined the broker in 1983, and was a leading member of the team that managed one of the world’s largest energy portfolios.

“Superior service is key to developing the long-term relationships with clients and their brokers that will underpin our success,” said Torus CEO Clive Tobin. “We are fortunate to be able to call on Tim’s expertise and experience in this area to direct our initiatives in the London and UK markets.”
