Rob Gibbs joins SiriusPoint as president
SiriusPoint Ltd, the global specialty re/insurer based in Bermuda, has appointed Rob Gibbs as president of its international business and to CEO of SiriusPoint International Insurance Corporation.
Based in London, he will be responsible for driving growth, development and profitability within SiriusPoint’s international platform, which encompasses the company’s European hubs in Stockholm, Zurich and Liege, a London branch office, Sirius International Managing Agency, and Lloyd’s Syndicate 1945.
The company said Mr Gibbs will be responsible for the management and oversight of run-off activities and oversee the transformation of the SiriusPoint International platform, working closely for a handover period with outgoing CEO Monica Cramér Manhem, who announced her retirement last month after 38 years with the company and its predecessor businesses.
Mr Gibbs, who has 24 years of re/insurance industry experience, was most recently commercial managing director of Royal Sun Alliance in the UK, where he worked for over two decades in various underwriting and senior management positions. He has also served on the board of RSA’s reinsurance company.
He will report to SiriusPoint chief executive officer Scott Egan as a member of SiriusPoint’s executive leadership team.
Mr Egan said: “I am delighted to welcome Rob to SiriusPoint. He is an exceptional underwriter, manager and leader, and brings a wealth of experience in markets critical to SiriusPoint.
“The ongoing evolution of our international platform, including the integration into that platform of our vital London business, is a priority for me. I see great opportunity to strengthen our performance as we refocus our offering, maintain operational and underwriting discipline and deliver outstanding client service.”
SiriusPoint also announced that Anders Hjelm has been promoted to deputy chief executive officer of SiriusPoint International Insurance Corporation, effective on Monday, subject to regulatory approval. Mr Hjelm will also continue in his current role of the head of legal and compliance, SiriusPoint International.
Additionally, Jennifer Bowie has been appointed interim chief underwriting officer of SiriusPoint International, also effective on Monday. Ms Bowie has been head of Outwards Reinsurance since 2021, and has been part of Sirius Group, one of SiriusPoint’s predecessor companies, since 2016.
