The chairman of Italian investment giant Exor today became chairman of the board at PartnerRe.

John Elkann’s firm completed a $6.9 billion deal to take over the Bermuda reinsurer after a takeover battle with Axis Capital Holdings.

Mr Elkann said: “I am honoured to assume the role of chairman of PartnerRe and very pleased that we can appoint from within the company a CEO of the calibre and experience of Emmanuel Clarke.

“His intimate knowledge of PartnerRe and his deep understanding of the sector will prove crucial as we embrace the challenges and the many exciting opportunities we have in front of us.”
