ABIR reshuffles committee and working group management teams

The Association of Bermuda Insurers and Reinsurers (ABIR) has reshuffled the management of its committees and working groups, and formed the Climate Risk Committee (CRC). 

The new CRC is chaired by Jeffrey Manson, senior vice president and head of global public sector partnerships at RenaissanceRe.

ABIR’s Policy Committee, which reviews public policy and re/insurance regulation in Bermuda and internationally, is now led by co-chairs Edward Mishambi, senior vice president and chief risk officer for Europe at RenaissanceRe, and Gemma Carreiro, general counsel at Hamilton Insurance Group. Tim Peckett, general counsel at Arch Reinsurance, is named as deputy chair, with Suzanne Williams-Charles, ABIR’s director of policy and regulation, corporate secretary and data privacy officer, also on the committee. 

The Cyber Working Group is led by co-chairs, Devin Page, head of specialty reinsurance at Hiscox Re, and Allen Wilson, chief information security officer at Axis Capital.

The Insurance Linked Securities (ILS) and Alternative Capital Working Group is led by Andrew Hughes, chief executive officer for third-party capital at Partner Re. The Human Resources Working Group is led by co-chairs Lisa Robinson, head of HR and operations at Convex Re, and Randolph Simons, vice president and senior HR business partner at Global Reinsurance and director of compensation and benefits at Chubb.

The Data and Privacy Taskforce is chaired by Jim Paugh, general counsel at Chubb Bermuda, while the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee is led by Catherine Duffy, country leader at AIG.

John Huff, president and chief executive of ABIR, said: “These accomplished leaders represent the best of the innovative and entrepreneurial spirit of Bermuda’s leading insurers and reinsurers, which are vital to maintaining global economies around the world.”

“ABIR has a deep bench of talented, re/insurance executives willing to lead on important regulatory, policy and international industry initiatives,” added ABIR chair and Arch Capital Group chief executive Marc Grandisson.
