ACE launches environmental risk taskforce for Europe

ACE Group has named Nicolas Givelet as Risk Engineer in its Continental Europe environmental insurance team as it continues to invest in building its environmental risk expertise for clients facing an increasingly complex global regulatory environment.

“Given his extensive understanding of environmental risk from an insurance, broking, academic and technical perspective, Nicolas will be a great asset to our growing European environmental risk team,” ACE said.

In this newly-created role, Nicolas will lead a new environmental risk engineering taskforce for ACE in the region, assisting the pan-European underwriting and claims teams on technical matters, as well as liaising with ACE's clients and suppliers.

He will also coordinate and manage a team of specialist external consultants to support specific projects in key markets. He will report to Dorothee Prunier, Environmental Risk Manager for Continental Europe, and takes up his Paris-based role with immediate effect.

He joins ACE from AXA Corporate Solutions, where he was Environmental Risks Underwriter. Before joining AXA in 2011, he spent four years as Environmental Risks Client Advisor at Marsh. Dorothee Prunier, Environmental Risk Manager for Continental Europe at ACE, said: “Environmental liability is one of Europe's key emerging risks and it is a strategic growth area for ACE.

“By building an environmental risk engineering task force of internal and external experts, we will ensure that our clients have access to the best possible combination of underwriting and risk engineering expertise both for stand-alone and multinational programmes.

“Given his extensive understanding of environmental risk from an insurance, broking, academic and technical perspective, Nicolas will be a great asset to our growing European environmental risk team.”
