Changes atop Mt Logan Re as David Whiting retires
Mt Logan Re Ltd, the third party capital unit of Everest Re Group Ltd, has made two senior appointments.
Greg McBride has been named to the newly created position of global head of marketing and business development, and Clint Graham has been appointed to the role of chief underwriting officer.
The company also announced the retirement of David Whiting, who joined Mt Logan in 2013 and has played a critical role in its evolution as the company’s chief underwriting officer, board member, and former president.
“We are thrilled to welcome Greg and the calibre of experience he brings to Mt Logan,” said John Modin, the company’s president.
“With more than two decades of deep industry experience across reinsurance, ILS, and capital markets, Greg’s background and expertise position him well to expand our growing investor base.
“Greg will be key to increasing our property and catastrophe business and in developing new low correlation investment products to drive sustained growth and profitability.”
In his new role, Mr McBride will be responsible for the expansion of the Mt Logan investor base with asset managers, pensions, sovereign wealth funds and endowments across the world.
Prior to joining Mt Logan, he held senior positions at Markel Corporation and JLT Re, where he led insurance-linked securities and global and domestic reinsurance programmes.
Mr McBride earned a bachelor of science and a master of science degree in accountancy, as well as a master of business administration in finance, from Villanova University.
In his role as chief underwriting officer, Mr Graham will be responsible for managing the risk share between Everest’s reinsurance business and Mt Logan investors.
Mr Graham joined Mt Logan in the spring of 2021 as the head of property underwriting and analytics.
Prior to Everest, he served in a variety of underwriting, catastrophe modelling, and broking capacities at global re/insurance and asset management organisations including Willis Re, Arch Re, and Nephila Capital.
Mr Modin said: “I am also excited to name Clint Graham as our new chief underwriting officer, subject to government and regulatory approvals.
“Clint brings a wealth of experience in the property catastrophe reinsurance and capital markets convergence spaces.
“With strong analytical skills and risk management acumen, I am confident Clint will successfully advance the underwriting discipline and leadership that David Whiting has brought to Mt Logan since the company’s inception nine years ago.”
He added: “We want to thank David, who is retiring after serving in several leadership roles at Mt Logan. He has had a long and successful career at the company, and we wish him all the best in his retirement.”
