DUAL has announced two key appointments for its recently created DUAL Europe region.
Effective immediately, Olaf Jonda, currently Managing Director, DUAL Deutschland, will take on the role of Chief Executive Officer (CEO), DUAL Europe, reporting to Richard Clapham, CEO, DUAL Group.
At the same time, Daniela Rubes, currently Chief Financial Officer (CFO), DUAL Italia, has been appointed CFO, DUAL Europe.
These promotions shortly follow after Maurizio Ghilosso was named as Executive Chair, DUAL Europe, in early April.
The creation of a DUAL Europe leadership team reflects the importance of the region in DUAL Group’s ambitious plans to grow to a US$5bn GWP international MGA by 2027.
Moreover, DUAL has been operating in Europe for almost 25 years, having launched in Spain in 1998 and operates today from 14 European locations in 10 countries, employing 200 people.
Ghilosso said: “I am thrilled to welcome Olaf and Daniela to the DUAL Europe regional leadership team. They have both been with DUAL for more than 10 years and these well-deserved promotions absolutely demonstrate our philosophy of attracting and developing the best talent in the industry. Olaf and Daniela bring an in-depth knowledge not just of DUAL but also of the wider European market that will be invaluable as we position ourselves for further growth.”
Richard Clapham, CEO, DUAL Group added: “Our ambition is to grow DUAL Europe to a US$750m GWP business over the next five years, and Olaf and Daniela will play a significant role in delivering this growth. Investment in talent is an important part of our strategy and I am delighted we have filled these critical roles internally.
“I am confident that our DUAL Europe leadership team will build a regional business that continues to attract the best underwriters in the European marketplace, as well as broadening our product offering to our distribution partners and clients.”
