Oyin Heath will join BGC Insurance Group as senior partner of its recently launched aviation and space insurance and reinsurance unit, the brokerage announced Friday.

Based in London, Ms. Heath joins BGC from Marsh JLT Specialty, where she was a managing director and leader of the space and manufacturer segments of its aviation and aerospace division and had held several roles since joining from Aon PLC in 2012.

Ms. Heath is the latest in a series of senior appointments at BGC and joins Philip Smaje, CEO.

Subject to regulatory approval, Ms. Heath will start her new role after completing notice period obligations, BGC said in a statement.

BGC Insurance is owned by New York- and London-based financial services firm BGC Partners Inc. Last year, it announced the purchase of London-based Ed Broking Group Ltd., and in 2017 it acquired Besso Insurance Group Ltd.
