Biltir appoints Scott Selkirk to board
Bermuda International Long Term Insurers and Reinsurers has appointed Scott Selkirk to its board.
Mr Selkirk, who has chaired the Biltir strategy committee, is chief underwriting officer at Somerset Re. He moved to Bermuda in 2007, and he was previously head of pricing at Standard Life of Canada’s Bermuda branch.
Sylvia Oliveira, chairwoman of Biltir, said: “Scott has worked tirelessly to make valuable contributions to Biltir, which includes the onerous task of leading the highly successful Biltir conference each year since its inception.
“Scott also instituted and coordinates the CedarBridge math tutoring programme, where Biltir member employees assist students prepare for their GCSE math exams.
“Scott is an adept and knowledgeable actuary with over 20 years of life insurance experience, 13 of which have been in Bermuda. I have had the pleasure of working directly with Scott for four years at Chubb (ACE) Tempest Re, so I can attest first-hand to Scott’s exceptional character and integrity. Scott’s vast reinsurance experience, his principled and affable manner, and his consistent high-level dedication to Biltir made him an outstanding candidate for board directorship. I have no doubt that Scott will be a strong asset to the Biltir board.”
Mr Selkirk said: “I’m looking forward to expanding my involvement within Biltir as a board member. Through the hard work of the Biltir Board, and the many active members of its committees, we will continue to advocate for our members to ensure the impactful work being done in this industry continues to be a local and international success story."
Biltir represents 61 long-term insurance, reinsurance and servicing companies in Bermuda who provide life and annuity products.
