Following the acquisition of the Zeller Group in October 2018, Thomas Miller is implementing further changes in Thomas Miller Specialty GmbH (TMS GmbH). The aim of these adjustments is to develop Hamburg into a strong hub for the Fixed Premium P&I business within the TM Group.
In connection with the reorganization Captain Bert Wardetzki, Managing Director for many years, stepped down and will leave Hanseatic. We would like to thank him very much for his dedicated and expert work in building up our company and establishing the “Hanseatic Underwriters” brand in the international P&I insurance market. We wish Mr. Wardetzki all the best for his future.
Furthermore we need to announce that Ian Cameron left the company and we will close our Chelmsford based UK office. We would like to thank Ian for his committed work for Hanseatic as Claims Director and we wish him all the best for his further career. Our Claims handling will continue to be handled by the known team in Hamburg and will be technically managed by Thomas Miller Claims Management (TMCM) with support of their global operation.
As Managing Director Tobias Braun continues to be responsible for Business Development, Finance and Underwriting. Helge Volger is assigned to him as Underwriting Director.
Furthermore, Tomas Schmidt has been appointed as Managing Director. He will be responsible for Human Resources, Compliance, Operations and Risk Management. Mr. Schmidt joint Hanseatic in 2013 and has become a member of the Management Team in 2017.
We would like to thank you for the trust you have placed in us and we are looking forward expanding our cooperation even further in the near future.
