RenaissanceRe has appointed David Marra as president of Renaissance Reinsurance US.
Marra has been promoted to the role. He was formerly senior vice president and chief underwriting officer of casualty and specialty at the Bermuda-based company.
In his new role, Marra will continue to report to Ross Curtis, group chief underwriting officer, RenaissanceRe. He joined RenaissanceRe in 2008, when he was appointed as a vice president. He then joined the firm’s executive committee in 2012.
Marra succeeds Elizabeth Mitchell, who will be taking an extended sabbatical after serving with Renaissance Reinsurance US and predecessor companies since 1993.
“Liz has played a key role in RenaissanceRe’s development during the period following our acquisition of Platinum,” said Kevin O’Donnell, chief executive officer, RenaissanceRe.
“She has facilitated a smooth transition and helped lead the integration of our strong underwriting cultures. My management team, fellow directors and I are thankful for her service and leadership. After her well-earned sabbatical, we look forward to exploring possibilities to continue our relationship in other capacities in the future.”
O’Donnell said the firm is pleased to appoint Marra, who he said has been integral to the growth, strategic positioning and profitability of the company’s casualty and specialty reinsurance franchise.
