BMS Re snares Conning business development executive

BMS has appointed Ryan Saul as senior vice president at BMS Re.

Saul was formerly a business development director and senior relationship manager at Conning for over five years, focusing on insurance asset management and leading a number of major insurance investment portfolios. Before that he served as a new business development professional at New England Asset Management. He was also a vice president at Aon Benfield between 2000 and 2011, specialising in property reinsurance solutions.

In his new role Saul reports to Steve Galleger, executive vice president at BMS Re.

Pete Chandler, chief executive officer and president of BMS Re, said Saul’s experience in both property reinsurance and insurance asset management will be instrumental in consolidating BMS’s market presence and supporting the development of its reinsurance products.

“As a growing specialist reinsurance broker, our team continues to develop customised solutions and build new market relationships across a number of select areas within the re/insurance industry,” he added.

Saul highlighted BMS’ reputation for offering tailored reinsurance solutions, and strategic investment in analytics and areas such as property treaty, which he said demonstrate its understanding of client needs.
