Everest Re poaches AIG exec to head up casualty unit


Everest Re Group has announced that former AIG executive Christopher McKeon has joined Everest Insurance as the new leader of its commercial casualty unit within the risk management group.

The unit will target upper middle market clients within select industry segments. Located in the group’s New York City office, McKeon will oversee a unit that will provide multi-line, primary casualty solutions for accounts with loss picks between $250,000 and $1,000,000. He will report directly to David Sandler, head of the Everest risk management group.

McKeon was previously head of primary casualty corporate accounts at AIG. He started at the company in 1992, and held a variety of roles of increasing responsibility within the AIG organization. He holds the Associate in Reinsurance (ARe) and Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter (CPCU) designations.

"We are delighted that Chris has joined Everest," said Sandler. "He is an accomplished and action oriented leader, as well as a sound underwriting technician who I’ve had the pleasure of knowing, and working with, for many years. Chris’s knowledge of the upper middle market space, his industry and client relationships and his marketplace reputation, will be an asset to Everest as we launch our new Commercial Casualty unit."
