Probitas 1492 Hires Jason Mortimer in European Growth Thrust

Mortimer previously held the roles of European Client Relationship & Business Development Director and Country Manager of Torus France. Fluent in French, German and Italian, Mortimer will drive business at Probitas 1492 across continental Europe for all lines of business, while underwriting a global property portfolio.

Chief Underwriting Officer of Property, Jon Foley, commented

Jason has a history of establishing profitable growth for brands across Europe, particularly in new markets. We’re confident that he will be a real asset to the team and in growing the business.

We have a focus on both emerging countries where commercial insurance spend is still growing and mature countries where there is scope to grow Lloyd’s overall market share, such as Continental Europe where Jason’s experience will be invaluable in helping us achieve our goals
