Sarah Ruberry named as CEO of Catalina General


Catalina Holdings Bermuda has appointed Sarah Ruberry as chief executive officer of Catalina General (CatGen), Catalina’s flagship Bermuda-based reinsurer. 

Ruberry, a Bermuda resident, will take up her post in early November. She joins from StarStone, the specialty insurer, where she was chief risk officer of the US and Bermuda operations, and has experience working in finance, strategy, risk management and operations roles.   

Ruberry succeeds Gary Haase, Catalina’s group chief operating officer, who has held the position since 2017 and will remain a director of CatGen.

Meanwhile, Claudia Ingenhoven has been named as chief executive officer of Glacier Re, the Swiss subsidiary of Catalina Holdings. Ingenhoven most recently served as chief financial officer of iptiQ EMEA P&C, Swiss Re’s pan-European white-label P&C insurer. Before that she spent over a decade in the run-off arena in a variety of roles with AXA Liabilities Managers, including group chief financial officer, head of M&A integration and chief executive of AXA LM Switzerland.

Ingenhoven replaces Martin Kauer who has been chief executive since July 2011 but has now moved to Singapore to serve as chief executive of Asia Capital Re, Catalina’s most recent strategic acquisition.

Chris Fagan, chief executive of Catalina, said the appointments mark important steps in the development of Catalina’s Swiss and Bermudian operations, and thanked the outgoing executives for their “standout contributions to Glacier Re and Catalina General respectively.”
