ACE appoints Gordon Knox as Casualty Manager, Scotland

ACE Group today announced the promotion of Gordon Knox, Senior Casualty Underwriter, to the position of Casualty Manager, Scotland, as it continues to invest in building its liability insurance capabilities across the country.

In his new role, Gordon will be responsible for the overall management and growth of ACE’s significant casualty portfolio in Scotland, with a particular focus on client engagement and the maintenance and development of broker-focused working practices.
