New appointments at Everest
Everest Re Group has named Artur Klinger as its new head of international reinsurance. Based in Zurich, Klinger will oversee the company’s reinsurance business in Europe, Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and Latin America and report directly to Everest Group COO and head of reinsurance Jim Williamson.
The company has also appointed Rui Marliere to lead its Latin America and Caribbean reinsurance business.
Klinger brings more than two decades’ reinsurance experience to the role, most recently as Everest’s managing director of continental Europe, where the company says he built a successful team and achieved strong growth in its P&C treaty portfolio. Klinger has also held various executive roles at Munich Re, including as chief underwriting officer of its Swiss subsidiary NewRe and managing director of Munich Re’s Capital Partners unit, responsible for structuring reinsurance solutions to support growth and capital strategies for clients across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia.
Before that, he was chief actuary at Allianz Risk Transfer and Alea. He holds a PhD in statistics.
Marliere’s promotion sees him tasked with supporting the reinsurance division’s growth in Latin America and the Caribbean region, drawing on experience leading underwriting business in Brazil, Peru, and Chile. Most recently, Marliere served as the head treaty underwriter for Everest’s Caribbean and Colombia portfolios. Before joining Everest, he held various key leadership roles at XL Group in treaty and facultative underwriting, claims and accounting.
“The exceptional track record and local expertise Artur and Rui bring to our international reinsurance business reflect the leadership excellence Everest is known for throughout the world,” said Juan C. Andrade, Everest president and CEO.
“We will continue to invest in the people and infrastructure that best position us to support the needs of the global market, further advance Everest’s long-term growth agenda, and deliver on our promise to our shareholders and the businesses and communities who need us most.”
“The appointments of Artur and Rui are a testament to Everest’s extraordinary talent and reflect Everest’s reputation as a preferred global reinsurance underwriter,” said Jim Williamson, Everest group COO and head of reinsurance. “Both are seasoned, international executives who understand the needs of local markets with the experience and relationships to best serve them. They augment our global team and capabilities and play an important role in positioning Everest for the future.
