Charles Goldie, formerly CEO of specialty lines at PartnerRe, has been appointed chief executive officer of PartnerRe’s property & casualty division, following the retirement of Tad Walker.
Goldie has headed up PartnerRe’s specialty lines business since 2010 and as a member of PartnerRe’s executive management team, has been instrumental in establishing the company’s long-term strategy and organisational structure. Previously he held the position of SVP, head of specialty lines for PartnerRe US from 2002 to 2009 and deputy head PartnerRe Global from 2014, responsible for all PartnerRe Global non-life business. He will relocate from Zurich to Stamford, Connecticut, US for his new role, starting from Jan. 15.
Emmanuel Clarke, PartnerRe’s chief executive officer, will take overall responsibility for specialty lines assisted by Greg Haft who was appointed deputy chief executive officer specialty lines at the start of 2018. Haft will lead within specialty lines, a newly formed unit of specialty property, marine and energy. Previously head of global catastrophe and property, North America, Haft has been responsible for catastrophe since he joined PartnerRe in 2013.
“As an established leader at PartnerRe, Charlie brings experience and stability for our clients and brokers in P&C who will continue to receive the same quality service from PartnerRe,” said Clarke. “Charlie’s success in building client relationships and delivering reinsurance solutions across a wide spectrum of markets will translate well to our P&C business.
“At the same time, I would like to congratulate Greg on his promotion to deputy chief executive officer specialty lines. His long and successful track record in property catastrophe coupled with his leadership skills made him an excellent choice for this position and I look forward to his support.
“In both cases, I am very pleased that we have been able to draw on the strength of our internal talent to fill these important positions and to provide meaningful opportunities for growth for our leaders.”
