Women in Reinsurance, an organisation for professional women working in Bermuda reinsurance, has appointed Peta White as board chair. She succeeds Kathleen Reardon who will remain a director.

Ms White is co-head of global reinsurance operations and senior managing director, head of North America property reinsurance at Markel Global Reinsurance. Chief executive officer of Hamilton Re, Ms Reardon has been board chair of WiRe since 2014.

“I’m thrilled to announce Peta’s appointment,” Ms Reardon said. “As an active member of our board since 2017, and a recognised leader in the Bermuda reinsurance space, I know she’s the ideal next chair to continue WiRe’s journey and persist as an advocate group for women. I’m grateful to my board, committees and our dedicated members for ten remarkable years of pulling together to strengthen the industry and look forward to being an active member of the board.”

Ms White was honoured to take on the role.

“I look forward to working with my board colleagues and our committees as we continue to provide our members with growth opportunities through networking, mentoring and professional development activities,” she said. “Our goals include implementing a formal mentoring programme and collaborating with other inclusive organisations in Bermuda to offer networking and training events that will appeal to women at all stages of their reinsurance careers.”

She thanked Ms Reardon for her contributions to WiRe.

“As one of its founding members, her dynamic leadership and dedication have helped drive WiRe’s growth and presence in Bermuda,” Ms White said. “We look forward to her continued support as a member of the board.”
