RMS has named Oliver Nieswandt as managing director of Continental Europe, succeeding Christer Pehrson who is due to move to the company’s office in New York.
Nieswandt will be based in RMS Zurich office.
Nieswandt began his career at Hannover Re developing systems for catastrophe risk accumulation, reinsurance treaty administration, and underwriting. He then joined SAP where his roles included global client director for Allianz and Munich Re, client executive, and manager of custom development projects.
Speaking of the appointment Neil Isford, executive vice president, RMS said: “I am excited to have Oliver joining the RMS team as he brings a wealth of experience in insurance, software, and services to our business,”
“Oliver is viewed by his former managers, employees, and customers as an excellent collaborator who is very focused on developing and supporting his team, as well as being a strong advocate for his clients.”
Nieswandt added, “RMS’s reputation for client service, technological innovation and scientific rigor is second to none.”
“As businesses and organisations increasingly want to better understand the risks they might face, risk modelling becomes even more important, not only in the boardroom but in society as a whole.”
