Everest Re Group has hired a senior executive from the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation “Freddie Mac” as executive vice president and group general counsel.

Before Freddie Mac, Anzaldua was EVP and general counsel of MetLife. Earlier, at The Hartford Financial Services Group, Anzaldua served as general counsel for the P&C company.

“Ricardo is a highly accomplished and trusted strategic advisor whose exceptional legal acumen and extensive knowledge of complex, global business and legal issues make him a valuable addition to our senior leadership team,” said Andrade.

“Ricardo’s experience in fluently navigating broad regulatory, compliance and litigation issues across the U.S., Bermuda and other global markets will be an asset as we advance our global strategic objectives. With a proven track record of developing talent and collaborative, diverse and inclusive teams, Ricardo is a high-impact leader who shares Everest’s cultural values.”

Andrade added: “As we welcome Ricardo, I also want to thank Brent Hoffman, our interim General Counsel, for his outstanding leadership and contributions during this transition. Brent will now resume his duties as Senior Vice President, Head of Claims and Chief Operations Officer for Everest’s Reinsurance business. I look forward to working alongside Ricardo, Brent, and our other senior leaders as we continue to create value for our shareholders, clients and colleagues.”
