Bermuda-based reinsurer Ariel Re has added Daniel Carr to its London office as Head of Cyber, effective October 1.
Carr most recently served for Occam Underwriting as as Chief Innovation Officer and Cyber Lead.
Prior to that he worked as a Cyber Security Specialist with AEGIS in London.
Ariel Re says this addition aligns with its broader vision of being the premier manager of reinsurance risk.
Carr will hope to leverage his previous experience as a Principal Consultant for Cyber at BAE Systems and member of the UK Ministry of Defence as a Cyber Specialist.
Commenting on the new hire, CEO Ryan Mather said, “Ariel Re’s goal is to gain a deeper understanding of the evolving Cyber liability landscape, while bringing innovative solutions and meaningful capacity to our clients.
“Having Daniel in the newly created role of Head of Cyber is exciting for us at this juncture of the market.
“Daniel brings a wealth of Cyber underwriting expertise, as well as a deep technical understanding of Cyber exposures.”
