Capsicum Re, the specialist reinsurance broker, today announces that Jerry Blake is the latest senior reinsurance specialist who will be making the move to join its expanding organisation.

Jerry will take up his new role as a Partner within Gallagher Re in September 2021. He joins the Gallagher Re team from Aon, where he has held multiple senior broking positions during his 34 years with the company. Jerry is a well-known name in the world of reinsurance having built a reputation for his innovative approach to risk transfer management and his ability to secure high quality reinsurance capacity on even the most complex risks for global clients.

Rupert Swallow, CEO of Capsicum Re, said: “Hiring the best people into our expanding business is a core part of our strategy, so we are delighted that the prospect of joining Gallagher Re is proving to have such huge appeal to major industry talent such as Jerry. His experience, expertise and reputation in the market all speaks to why we see Jerry as a stellar addition to our growing team and I look forward to welcoming him into Gallagher Re.”

It was announced earlier this month that Capsicum Re, which Gallagher fully acquired in January 2020, will be renamed Gallagher Re with effect from 01 October 2020. The move concludes the reinsurance operation’s full integration into Gallagher, one of the world’s largest risk management and insurance brokers.
