Wilson joins Hamilton at ‘exciting’ new time

Tomorrow, Steve Wilson takes up the mantle of senior vice-president, head of casualty and speciality for Hamilton Insurance Group's new American reinsurance platform.

Based in New York for this new role, Mr Wilson will help launch the build out of Hamilton's global reinsurance footprint in the United States, in line with its long-term strategy to build a global diversified speciality insurance and reinsurance company.

“I'm delighted to welcome Steve into this newly-created leadership position at such an exciting time, coming as it does following our transformative acquisition that closed last month and as we focus on building our reinsurance franchise,” Hamilton Re chief executive officer Kathleen Reardon said. “His significant market knowledge together with his proven underwriting skills and track record will be instrumental in developing US reinsurance opportunities for us. We look forward to further enhancing our product offering as we continue to build out this platform.”

Mr Wilson has extensive experience in reinsurance. Previously, Mr Wilson was senior vice-president of underwriting at Third Point Re in Bermuda. Prior to that, he spent eleven years at Munich Re America, most recently as head of financial and professional lines where he managed the professional liability and credit/surety/political risk underwriting teams. Before that, he served in a range of increasingly senior underwriting and actuarial roles at Munich Re America. Prior to Munich Re America, Mr Wilson was an associate at KPMG where he focused on reinsurance.

He is a graduate of Pennsylvania State University, and holds a bachelor of science in mathematics. He is a fellow of the Casualty Actuarial Society.
