Inver Re – the reinsurance arm of the Ardonagh Group - has made another key hire, appointing Alun Thomas in the new role of Global Head of Property Reinsurance.
Alun will be responsible for the development of a new property reinsurance proposition – with a base in Bermuda. Having been on the island for 15 years, most lately as Head of Property at MS Amlin, Alun is a well known figure in the market and brings with him 26 years of experience from both broker and underwriting perspectives.
The role reports into Chris Bonard, CEO - Bermuda. He commented: “Our aim at Inver Re is to do things differently and breathe a breath of fresh air into reinsurance – and that’s exactly why we think we’re so lucky to have Alun join us. He knows the global property market inside out and brings an underwriting perspective that’s going to help us shape something new, relevant and dynamic for our end clients.”
Alun Thomas commented: “What really attracted me to the role was the team of diverse and brilliant people already on board. I can’t wait to work with them – and I’m really excited at the opportunity to build something new with Inver Re, whilst being part of such an established presence in the marketplace through the Ardonagh Group.”
Launched in 2021 as part of the $13bn global premium Ardonagh Group, Inver Re now has offices across London, Bermuda and the US and has grown fast into a team of over 100 reinsurance professionals.
