SiriusPoint picks new CTO to drive data and tech strategy

SiriusPoint has promoted a new chief technology officer with the current holder, Darryl Siry, leaving after two years in the post.

The Bermuda-based specialty re/insurer said Nestor Lopez (pictured) will join the executive leadership team from his current role as chief information officer.

Siry will leave SiriusPoint at the end of June, after a handover period, to pursue other career opportunities.

Lopez joined SiriusPoint in 2022. He will report to chief executive officer Scott Egan and is responsible for building out SiriusPoint’s data capabilities.

Egan said: “The quality and accessibility of our data is central to SiriusPoint’s strategy and best-in-class aspirations. I look forward to continuing to work with Nestor as we further develop our data and tech capabilities.

"It is a pleasure to announce his promotion and to recognise the talent we have at SiriusPoint.”

He added: “Darryl leaves with our best wishes for the future: the IT function and team have thrived under his leadership, and he has been a valuable and active member of the executive leadership team.”

Lopez was previously CIO at Coaction Specialty Insurance (formerly known as ProSight Specialty Insurance). Prior to that he held various leadership roles in information technology and operations, at CNA Insurance, Fireman’s Fund Insurance Company / Allianz Group and General Electric.
