Rob Wendin to lead BMS’ newly launched global healthcare division

Independent specialist re/insurance broker BMS has launched its new global healthcare division, set to be led by industry veteran Rob Wendin serving as managing director.

According to the announcement, the new division will provide solutions and guidance to healthcare providers and their insurers, as well as access to BMS’ range of insurance, reinsurance and risk management services and products.

Wendin, who is based in London, joined the firm in December 2023. Six more have already joined the team since Wendin, with more reportedly set to follow.

Wendin, who will report to Andrew Wheeler, president and CEO at BMS Re, joins with valuable experience across insurance, reinsurance, and healthcare spanning more than four decades.

Most recently he served as managing director of healthcare at Guy Carpenter, and before that, he served as a senior partner at JLT’s Healthcare Risk Partners and managing director at Marsh’s EMEA Healthcare Practice.

He is a respected and renowned figure on healthcare liability and risk management issues and has worked in senior positions all over the world.

In addition, Wendin also brings a robust understanding of how underwriters think and operate having established and previously led Allied World’s European Healthcare underwriting platform.

From what we understand, BMS’ new division will focus on working with the company’s clients in order to develop and provide access to new market capacity, innovative solutions and risk management advice.

In addition, the division will also provide advice and transactional services such as technical coverage issues for medical malpractice and associated liabilities.

As well as this, Wendin and his team will work seamlessly with BMS Re’s long-established treaty healthcare liability team,  led by Clare Stenson.

Wheeler commented: “As we continue to grow our industry-leading medical professional liability practice, Rob’s unparalleled experience across both insurance and reinsurance will be a huge asset to BMS. Alongside Clare Stenson and her team, the formation of Rob’s global healthcare division means we have a breadth and depth of experience which spans insurance, reinsurance, treaty, and facultative arrangements, which – crucially – isn’t inhibited by geographical or organisational barriers.

“In addition, Rob’s leadership experience will only benefit our existing team and clients as we continue to go above and beyond to help cedents, hospitals, integrated systems and captives in this rapidly evolving risk sector.”

Wendin, also commented: “BMS has been going from strength to strength and it shows no sign of slowing down as a result of the way it puts its colleagues and clients first. I am delighted by the opportunity to lead this new division and look forward to being a part of BMS’s fantastic story.”
