Guy Carpenter strengthen specialty practice with two new executives

Guy Carpenter has announced that Christopher Moresco and Charlene Cass have joined its mutual company specialty practice.

Chris Moresco joins the mutual company specialty practice as business development leader and a managing director. Charlene Cass joins as a senior vice president and senior broker.

Moresco will be based in the Philadelphia office, reporting to David Domino, Philadelphia branch manager and a managing director. Cass will be based in Norwalk, Conn., and report to Rob Collins, a managing director and member of the mutual company specialty practice.

“Chris’s knowledge of the mutual company and regional marketplace strengthens our already extensive relationships within this client segment, which Guy Carpenter has served for decades,” Domino said.

“Charlene’s experience and expertise in program structuring and the facilitation of the reinsurance placement process, as well as many other areas, greatly expands our ability to meet the changing needs of our mutual company clients,” said Collins.

Before joining Guy Carpenter, Moresco’s most recent role involved co-leading JLT Towers Re’s regional company practice. He joined Towers Perrin in May 2006, several years before JLT acquired the reinsurance brokerage division of Towers Watson in November 2013.

Cass was most recently an executive vice president and location manager of the Stamford office of JLT Towers Re. She has over 20 years in the reinsurance industry, with experience in the broker market as well as direct reinsurance. In addition to program structuring, her expertise includes facilitation of the reinsurance placement process, including analytical support, contract terms and conditions, underwriting issues and accounting and claims support.

Andrew Marcell, CEO of US operations, commented, “The hiring of Chris and Charlene reflects Guy Carpenter’s long-term commitment to our mutual company clients. As the market evolves and our client companies face new challenges, we will continue to invest in innovative products and people that will help our mutual insurer-clients reach their growth and profit potential.”
