Bermuda-based legacy space specialist Catalina Holdings has announced the appointments of Claudia Ingenhoven as CEO of Glacier Re and Sarah Ruberry as CEO of Catalina General.

Ingenhoven will take over as CEO of the Swiss subsidiary from 19 August 2020, replacing Martin Kauer, who has held the role since 2011.

Meanwhile, Ruberry will take up her position at Catalina’s flagship Bermuda-based reinsurer from early November.

Ingenhoven most recently served as chief financial officer of ipitiQ EMEA P&C, Swiss Re’s pan-European white-label P&C insurer.

Prior to her time at Swiss Re, she spent over a decade in the run-off arena in a variety of roles with AXA Liabilities Managers, including group CFO, head of M&A Integration and CEO of AXA LM Switzerland.

She replaces Kauer who has moved to Singapore where he is now CEO of Asia Capital Re (ACR), Catalina’s most recent strategic acquisition.

Ruberry is a Bermuda resident and joins the business from the specialty insurer StarStone, where she was chief risk officer (CRO) of the US and Bermuda operations.  

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

Chris Fagan, chief executive of Catalina said: “The appointments of Claudia and Sarah mark important steps in the development of our Swiss and Bermudian operations. I am confident that they will be excellent successors to Martin and Gary, who I would like to thank personally for their standout contributions to Glacier Re and Catalina General respectively.”
