McEwen joins HDI Global Specialty from Toronto-based Canadian Aviation Insurance Managers Ltd, and is expected to lead the firm’s entry into the Canadian general aviation market. This will include the setting up of an aviation underwriting team serving the specialist aviation broker market in Canada. Its core focus will be fixed wing and rotary wing aircraft for commercial, industrial aid, and private risks, and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).
Welcoming McEwen, Derek Spafford, Canadian General Manager & Chief Agent at HDI Global Specialty SE said:
“I’m delighted to have Mike onboard to lead our aviation initiative in Canada. He brings a strong track record in the market with a well-established reputation. As a new player locally, we wanted to bring in a leader who is already well known and respected.
“The local aviation insurance market is quite tight-knit so it will be up to Mike to leverage his existing relationships as a means of driving our success.”
McEwen added: “I’m looking forward to driving the growth in scope and scale of HDI Global Specialty’s Canadian aviation business over the coming months.”
