Former PartnerRe CEO joins Intact board of directors

Emmanuel Clarke, the former president and chief executive officer (CEO) of Bermuda-based reinsurer PartnerRe, has been appointed to the board of Canadian property/casualty insurer Intact Financial Corporation.

Clarke left PartnerRe in July 2020 after spending more than 25 years at the reinsurer. During his tenure at PartnerRe, Clarke held various underwriting leadership roles in the company's property and casualty (P&C), specialty lines, and international divisions. In 2015, he was appointed president of the company and shortly thereafter took on the role of president and CEO, where his leadership was instrumental in building the company's global reinsurance business.

Clarke currently serves on various boards, including chairman of the board of re/insurance legacy specialist Compre Group, as well as Paris-based digital insurance company Wakam (ex-La Parisienne Assurances). He also sits on the boards of online reinsurance marketplace Tremor Technologies, and McKinsey & Company.

Claude Dussault, chair of board of directors at Intact, said: "We are pleased to welcome Emmanuel Clarke to our Board of Directors at this important stage of Intact's growth. As a highly respected and seasoned professional with valuable global insurance industry experience, we look forward to Mr. Clarke's guidance as Intact continues to execute its strategy."
