AXIS Re expands strategic partners unit with Swiss Re senior hire


AXIS Capital's reinsurance segment AXIS Re has expanded its strategic partners business with the appointment of Daniel Osterrieder as strategic account executive for North America.

Osterrieder joins from Swiss Re, where he most recently served as senior vice president, key account manager, for its global account business.

In his time with Swiss Re - which spans nearly a decade - Osterrieder was also senior treaty underwriter primarily focused on US casualty business. He also spent time working at Swiss Re’s Beijing office, where he leveraged underwriting authority for business written in both China and South Korea. Osterrieder began his insurance career at AIG and Willis.

AXIS Re's strategic partners unit is a dedicated team to serving select clients and brokers. Osterrieder will be responsible for leading global client relationships for the unit headquartered in North America.

The strategic partners team also includes: Herndon Stokes (EMEA), Simon Stirnemann (EMEA), Juan Manuel Martín Leon (EMEA), and Masaya Arao (SAE for Asia and Head of Japan for AXIS Re).

Additional appointments to the strategic partners team are expected for North America and Asia, with the latter focusing on the Australian market.
