Piiq Risk Partners, the global aerospace (re)insurance broker, has hired Sylvain Devouge as a senior partner. Based in Paris, Sylvain reports to Mark Costin, senior partner.
Sylvain will work across all aviation industry disciplines, developing (re)insurance expertise and tailored solutions, and will be responsible for the drafting and negotiation of (re)insurance documentation, contractual risk mitigation and claims advisory.
Sylvain brings 15 years of expertise to Piiq, for the last five of which he provided Swiss Re with legal advice on commercial (re)insurance contracts as a senior contract specialist. Prior to this, he was head of Marsh France’s aviation contracts and claims team, where he built extensive relationships with large aerospace manufacturers, maintenance, repair and overhaul companies (MROs) as well as airline clients.
Costin said: “I am very pleased to welcome Sylvain to the team. His significant contractual advisory and claims experience will be invaluable as we continue to expand Piiq’s aviation footprint and offering throughout Europe. Sylvain is firmly integrated in France’s robust and market-leading aerospace and manufacturing industry and he will play a central advisory role in support of our clients during a challenging period, while ensuring that coverage is in line with their needs and expectations.”
