WiRe announces three appointments
Women in Reinsurance, the organisation for women working in the Bermuda reinsurance sector, announced three appointments.
Rachael Afford, vice-president, specialty reinsurance, at Allied World, has been named
head of WiRe’s Events Committee.
Joelina Redden, general counsel, Athora Life Re, is the secretary, while Melissa Logie, manager of finance, Zurich Insurance, has been appointed treasurer.
“On the heels of our tenth anniversary, these appointments reflect our vision to broaden our management team and build a foundation for the future leadership of WiRe,” Kathleen Reardon, chairwoman of WiRe and chief executive officer of Hamilton Re, said.
“I would like to thank the outgoing officers, Julia Mather, Carmen Gracey and Susan Smith, for the significant work they performed in these roles and for helping to develop WiRe into the thriving organisation that it is today.”
WiRe also announced the appointment of Deniece Gordon, assistant underwriter, specialty reinsurance, XL Catlin, to the Events Committee and Amy Peniston, catastrophe modelling analyst at Hamilton Re, to the Social Media Committee, which is headed up by Jeannine Menzies.
“Since its inception in 2008, WiRe has moved from strength to strength, evolving from a small group of senior professional women to one that is now 266 members strong and represents women across all levels and disciplines in property and casualty reinsurance, life reinsurance, ILS, regulatory and service provider sectors,” Ms Reardon added.
“It is exciting to welcome new committee members to our organisation as we strive to diversify the array of programmes we offer while increasing the conversations about topical issues in our industry.”
She noted that today’s announcement follows the expansion of WiRe’s board of directors with the addition of Stephen Young, Sompo International, Peta White, Markel Global Re, and Tracey Gibbons, Allied World, to the board.
