Former AIG exec to lead Everest’s new business unit


Everest Re has appointed David Sandler as leader of Everest Risk Management at Everest Insurance. 

Targeting the risk management client segment, the new business unit enters the market with a product offering consisting of worker’s compensation, general and auto liability, foreign casualty, along with a full suite of casualty risk financing and servicing capabilities.

Everest will give Sandler, who is based in New York, responsibility over the existing Everest underwriting teams dedicated to this segment, while he pursues the select expansion of additional capabilities across the country.

For more than 22 years, Sandler has been working in the primary casualty market at AIG. While at AIG he held various positions within the overall casualty structure of the firm, including various underwriting and leadership roles within AIG Risk Management (AIGRM) as president of the commercial risk division and executive vice president and chief operating officer of US casualty.

Sandler has more recently served as executive vice president and head of corporate accounts at AIG.

“Dave brings to us a very deep and formidable skill set in the primary casualty and foreign casualty markets,” said Jonathan Zaffino, president of Everest Insurance North America. “He is widely known within the broker community as an astute technician, a thoughtful underwriter, and a talented leader.”

Zaffino added: “We are pleased to welcome Dave to the Everest team as he will undoubtedly be a valued addition to Everest Insurance and our expansion efforts within the risk management segment.”
