Gossmann & Cie. has introduced its new management team, including the appointment of Joanna Aquilina as Executive Director of Gossmann & Cie.’s new risk carrier, which is currently being setup in Malta.
Gossmann & Cie. was founded in 2018 by former DARAG Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Arndt Gossmann, to develop an innovative product for the continued optimisation of equity capital of non-life insurers.
Alongside Aquilina as Executive Director, the firm has also appointed Patrick Riecken to lead the transactions department as Head of Underwriting.
Aquilina previously served as CEO and was a member of the investment committee of the Maltese Protected Cell Company (PCC) of DARAG Group. Prior to this, she worked as a Director of Aon Insurance Managers in Malta and as part of the leadership team of Aon Captive Insurance Managers for EMEA.
Riecken most recently worked for Delvag Re, where he was head of the department responsible for Lufthansa reinsurance. He has previously worked for Gothaer Re and has extensive experience in the assessment of insurance portfolios.
“I am delighted to welcome two very experienced managers that combine strong business acumen with a forward-looking and pioneering mentality, elements that are at the heart of Gossmann & Cie. Our goal is to deliver holistic and data intuitive portfolio refinement solutions, ExPRO being the first in line. To do so, we focus on having the right people and creating the right data-driven solutions, while ensuring that we never lose the spirit of challenge that is paramount to supporting the digital transformation of our industry.
“Our progress so far shows that we are on the right track and now we are excited and ready for a wider market launch,” said Gossmann.
