We are pleased to announce that effective 1 November, Edward Secchi of MDD’s London office will relocate to Dubai to continue supporting MDD’s clients across the Middle East, Africa and Central Asia regions. Ed has worked in the firm’s London office since joining MDD over ten years ago. He has extensive experience quantifying economic damages in the power generation, refining/petrochemical, manufacturing, construction, retail, and aviation sectors.

Ed stated, “I am thrilled at the opportunity to relocate to the Middle East and lead the firm’s Dubai operations. Since its opening in 2013, MDD Dubai has been involved in several high-profile, high-value claims in the power generation, refining, petrochemical, manufacturing, and hotel sectors. We are immensely grateful for the opportunities our clients have provided and look forward to continuing to develop these relationships.”

Phillip Taylor, Managing Partner for Asia Pacific, stated, “the MENA region is gaining importance for our reinsurance clients based in Singapore. I am delighted that we have somebody of Ed’s experience, particularly in energy claims, to lead the Dubai office going forwards.”

Markus Heiss, Managing Partner for London and Europe, stated, “I have known and worked closely with Ed since he started his career with MDD in London. Ed’s considerable experience across Europe, the Middle East, and Africa in energy, manufacturing, and other industries make him a natural choice to lead this region on MDD’s behalf. I am very pleased he will now head our Dubai and Middle East operations and work closely with London and Asia.”
