Boutique international insurance broker La Playa has promoted Hanna Beaumont (FIRM) to Director: Corporate, overseeing its specialist commercial practices across Science & Technology and Media, Arts & Entertainment.
Originating from Sweden, Hanna has been with La Playa since 2006 in its Science & Technology insurance practice, and specialising in insurance for Life Science businesses. A Fellow of the Institute of Risk Management, Hanna looks after highly innovative high-growth companies, both UK and multinational, from start-up to IPO.
I’m excited to be heading up La Playa’s corporate division at a time when our specialist sectors Science, Technology and Media are driving the growth in our economy, said Hanna Beaumont. It’s all hands on deck to provide protection for these innovative companies as they push the boundaries of what’s possible - or even imaginable – while legislation and regulation strive to keep up with the pace of change.
We’ve enjoyed double-digit growth over a number of years now, and Hanna has been absolutely instrumental in driving this, says CEO Mark Boon. As well as being a superb technician, she’s a well-known and widely respected figure in the tech and science hub of Cambridge’s “Silicon Fen” and I’m delighted to have her at the helm of our corporate division.
