Ardonagh Group’s reinsurance broking arm, Inver Re, has announced the addition of Alun Thomas, formerly of MS Amlin, to the new role of Global Head of Property Reinsurance.
In his new role, Thomas takes on responsibility for developing a new property reinsurance proposition with a base in Bermuda.
He’s been on the island for 15 years, and has 26 years of experience in both broking and underwriting, most recently serving as Head of Property at reinsurer MS Amlin.
Thomas will report to Chris Bonard, Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Bermuda, who 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.”
Thomas added, “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.”
Following its launch in 2021, Inver Re now has offices in London, Bermuda, and the U.S., and has a team of more than 100 reinsurance professionals.
The appointment of Thomas comes after the firm hired Aon’s Kurt Cripps as its new Global Head of Parametric in January.
