Twenty years in re/insurance has provided me with a breadth of global experience across life and health, investments and, for the bulk of my career, property and casualty. This knowledge helps me to navigate the complexities of modern corporate structures. I’ve set my next goal to navigate the challenges of learning Spanish to better converse with the in-laws and to explore South America!

I’ve been working in the world of re/insurance for around 20 years, with experience in both claims and underwriting. While my main focus has always been on the casualty side, I’ve spread my wings into property reinsurance and now find myself looking at how Swiss Re can help our clients in new and interesting ways – look out!

Twenty years in the industry has been an ever-changing journey. From the thrills of personal insurance sales, to reinsurance claims and technical accounting in London, I was drawn into the realm of casualty underwriting. It was here I learnt not to fear the unknown, but to respond to emerging risks accordingly. If you are not riding the wave of change, you will find yourself beneath it.

Since joining the industry in 1994, I’ve enjoyed a variety of claims and underwriting roles across both property and liability – this included six years in London working for a global loss adjuster as marketing manager dealing with large catastrophes.
