Enstar Group appoints two independent directors

Re/insurance management firm Enstar Group has appointed two new independent directors, Poul Winslow and Hans-Peter Gerhardt.

Winslow has been the head of thematic investments and external portfolio management of Canada Pension Plan Investment Board since 2009. Prior to joining CPPIB, Winslow had several senior management and investment roles at Nordea Investment Management in Denmark, Sweden and the US. He will take the role as a member of Enstar's Investment and Compensation Committees.

Gerhardt has served continuously in the reinsurance industry since 1981. He is a co-founder and former chief executive officer (CEO) of PARIS RE Holdings, keeping that position from the company's formation in 2006 through its sale to PartnerRe in December 2009. He will serve as the Chairman of Enstar's Underwriting and Risk Committee.

Dominic Silvester, CEO of Enstar, said, "Throughout 2015, we have continued to bolster the depth of our board of directors by adding new members with diverse yet complementary skills and qualifications. Poul and Peter are strong additions to Enstar and I'm confident they will make significant contributions right away."

Enstar Group and its operating subsidiaries acquire and manage diversified insurance businesses through a network of service companies in Bermuda, the US, the United Kingdom, Continental Europe, Australia and other international locations.
