Liberty Specialty Markets (LSM), part of Liberty Mutual Insurance Group, announced the appointment of Jesse van Cleef to the newly created role of Head of MBTC Europe, Financial Risk Solutions (FRS). Van Cleef reports to Alexandra Paton, Head of Continental Europe - FRS and is based in the Netherlands. He takes up the role with immediate effect.

FRS is launching Multi Buyer Trade Credit (MBTC) in the European and London markets, and van Cleef is responsible for leading the development of this new product in these markets. LSM has been writing MBTC in North America since 2019.

“We created this new role as part of our growth strategy for this product.  Jesse’s experience and knowledge will be invaluable in supporting us to grow our portfolio. Jesse’s industry experience and strong relationships make him the perfect leader to drive this stage of our development”, said Alexandra Paton.

“We’re thrilled to bring Jesse on board to expand our MBTC capabilities to the European and London markets. With Jesse leading the way, we look forward to building a strong team and business in the region”, said Paul Kunzer, Head of MBTC for FRS. 

Van Cleef joins LSM from Atradius, where he has held several roles since he started there in 2006, the most recent being Regional Director of Special Products. He has more than 20 years of experience gained in financial services and insurance companies.
