Over 40 brokers engaged in the Greek market attended the evening on the 21st September hosted by the Piraeus based claims team H1 together with underwriting colleagues from London.
It was an excellent opportunity for our broker friends to meet the full Greek service and support of the Club including the new regional director, Daniel Evans, senior underwriting directors Paul Collier and Mark Mathews
