David Overton, Director of Sales

David has 20 years’ experience in the insurance market starting his career back in 1999 and has specialized in placing or underwriting difficult/complex risks across a broad spectrum of classes with a particular focus on those emanating from North America.

Initially starting as a Technician at Cooper Gay & Co. (now Ed.) this gave him an excellent grounding that led with a natural progression to him becoming a Lloyd’s placing broker; being a role that he also held at HSBC Insurance Brokers and Paragon International Insurance Brokers.

In 2009 David crossed over to underwriting and held the title of Financial Institutions Underwriter at both Barbican Syndicate 1955 and Allianz Global & Corporate Specialty (AGCS).

Then in 2016 a move back to broking saw him join Integro Insurance Brokers holding the title of Principal where he was responsible for heading up Cyber Liability working on solutions for large accounts that came into the London office from predominately US wholesalers or Integro’s own US retail network.

In June 2019 David left to join EmergIn Risk in New York.

Fun facts: A native Londoner, David has a young daughter and resides in Miami. An avid Chelsea fan and season ticket holder for many years he was at the Allianz Arena, Germany to witness Chelsea lift the Champions League in 2012, beating Bayern Munich in their own backyard.
