Nick joins from Swiss Re, where, as Senior Client Manager, he led the broker distribution strategy and client management for UK/Ireland Corporate.

Based in London, Nick will focus on maintaining and developing WCL’s existing client relationships, as well as developing WCL’s global network of clients as the business expands.
Meanwhile, Clement Arockiasamy joins WCL’s development team as a Test Analyst. With 10 years’ experience in the insurance industry, Clement recently worked with the Lloyd’s of London insurance market and provided testing and automation solutions for multiple projects. He has previously worked with Aviva Insurance, ZFS, Prudential Financials, Santander Banking and Baxter Healthcare industries by providing development, support and testing strategic solutions. Clement will focus on testing and implementing WCL’s processes to support WCL’s external clients and business partners.
“Both Nick and Clement were hired ‘virtually’ during the lockdown enforced by the COVID-19 pandemic,” said James Willison, Managing Director at WCL. “As the insurance market continues to adapt to meet the challenges of a changed market by working from home and trading electronically, WCL has seen a substantial rise in companies looking to transform their operations and communicate in the same digital language.
