Peter’s strategic vision to build a digitally enabled, analytical property and specialty re/insurer is an opportunity I couldn’t miss. I’m thrilled to be joining the team to work with such a first class management and underwriting team, as we look to deepen relationships and continue to execute on IQUW’s vision together.”
