TransRe has announced multiple changes to its regional leadership teams and global business development function within Latin America and Continental Europe.
In a recent press release TransRe said the changes are designed to better position the company to take advantage of current and future market opportunities.
Louise Rose has been appointed chief executive officer of TransRe London limited, effective 1 September 2019. She will succeed Geoff Peach, who is retiring after 27 years with TransRe.
Rose joined TransRe in 1997 from the National Vulcan Engineering Insurance Group. Since then she has held several roles across multiple lines of business. In those roles she has been responsible for setting and executing the underwriting strategy, business planning, staff development and customer relationship management for TransRe London. In addition, she has been increasingly involved in regulatory and governance matters.
Kyle Rhodes has been named as chief executive officer of TransRe Asia Pacific, a newly created position. He will be responsible for overseeing TransRe’s four regional offices and he will support the regional team as they develop and grow their customer and broker relationships.
He joined the business in 2006 from Employers Re where he formed and led the National & Specialty team at TransRe’s US Custom division before leading that division from 2012 to 2016. Most recently Rhodes created and led TransRe’s Business Development unit, where he concentrated on co-ordinating relationships with large global reinsurance buying groups.
Both Rose and Rhodes will report to Paul Bonny, president of TransRe’s European, Middle Eastern, African and Asia Pacific businesses.
Additionally Francesca Marc-Antonio joins TransRe as global head of business development, taking over from Rhodes. Marc-Antonio joins from JLT Re, where she served as global head of client relationship management. Prior to that, she spent 17 years at Swiss Re as head of marketing for the U.S. Property & Casualty Broker team, as well as head of the Global Broker Group.
In her new role, Marc-Antonio will work with all regions and all lines of business to drive data-based, profitable growth. She will report to Mike Sapnar, president and CEO of TransRe.
