After 31 years with SCOR, Michel Blanc will retire in January 2023. He will be succeeded as CEO of Reinsurance by Stuart McMurdo. Michel and Stuart will work very closely with immediate effect to ensure a smooth transition and relationship continuity with our business partners.
Stuart joined SCOR in 2018 as CEO of SCOR UK and the SCOR Syndicate, and became Regional CEO for EMEA in 2020. Stuart’s leadership was essential to improve the financial performance of the SCOR Syndicate and to bring together the P&C platform in EMEA.
A recruitment process has been launched to replace Stuart as CEO of the SCOR Syndicate and SCOR UK, and Stuart will remain CEO of these two entities until the end of this recruitment process and regulatory approval. Catherine Fassi will replace Stuart McMurdo as Regional CEO of EMEA and Canada for P&C, effective July 1st, 2022. These changes are a confirmation of SCOR’s deep talent bench and follow recently announced leadership changes in the US.
Jean-Paul Conoscente, CEO for P&C at SCOR, comments: “I’d like to express my warmest thanks to Michel for all that he has brought to SCOR since 1991, both worldwide and in the Asia-Pacific region. It has been a great pleasure working with Michel throughout those years and I wish him a very well- deserved, happy retirement”
