Awards ceremony host, John Huff, chief executive Association of Bermuda Insurers and Reinsurers, said: “As Abir celebrates its 30th Anniversary in 2023, we wanted to recognise Chlora Lindley-Myers as the first woman of colour in 152 years to be elected NAIC president.

“Of course, we could not let this moment pass without also recognising local hero, Cheryl Ann Lister, who was appointed chair and chief executive of Bermuda’s integrated financial services regulator, the Bermuda Monetary Authority back in 2002.

“The day after the DEI Trailblazer Awards, March 7, current BMA chief executive, Craig Swan, will moderate a discussion about international markets and regulatory co-operation.

The panel will include Tom Sullivan, former senior associate director, US Federal Reserve, and Alaska insurance director, Lori K. Wing-Heier representing the NAIC, just some of the regulators, along with the Bank of England’s Prudential Regulatory Authority, travelling here to participate in the Bermuda Risk Summit.”

David Hart, CEO, BDA said: “We are so pleased to have such senior-level standard setters and risk industry giants coming to Bermuda for our second annual Bermuda Risk Summit from March 6-8.

“We are sure to have something of interest for everyone in our dynamic agenda of world class speakers. In addition to cutting-edge content, there will also be C-suite networking opportunities at our signature and ancillary events.”
