Pool Re, Britain’s leading terrorism reinsurer, today announced the appointment of two new board members.
Claudio Gienal, CEO, AXA UK & Ireland and Alan Rubenstein, chairman of NHBC, joined the board on 11 March 2021. Both will contribute their extensive expertise in commercial insurance to Pool Re at a key time for the mutual as it navigates the outcomes of the ONS classification and the HM Treasury Review. AXA UK & Ireland is a member of Pool Re.
Alan Rubenstein will also serve as chair of the Investment Committee, upon Alan Brown’s retirement after more than 12 years’ service, following the conclusion of the company’s AGM in June.
Julian Enoizi, Pool Re chief executive, said: “It gives me great pleasure to welcome Claudio and Alan to the Pool Re board. Their combined experience will be of huge benefit to us as we chart the future direction of Pool Re. Our board members are vital as part of stimulating further innovative thinking within the organisation and the industry as we continue to meet the challenges of the evolving terrorism threat together as well as the emergence of other systemic risks. I very much look forward to working with Claudio and Alan. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Alan Brown for his many years of dedicated service to our board.”
