In her new role, she will be responsible for the company’s legal and compliance teams and will report to Kevin Rehnberg, chief executive officer.
Kiene joins the business from Sompo International, where she most recently served as assistant general counsel and chief compliance officer, data protection officer.
She has also held similar roles at Montpelier Re Holdings, Blue Capital Management and Familymeds Group Inc.

We’re looking forward to continuing to work with Susan as she moves into her new role leading our Programs, Transportation and Alternative Risk Solutions businesses.”
