Liberty Specialty Markets (LSM), the London-headquartered unit of Liberty Mutual Insurance Group, has announced the appointment of Ronan Gerety as General Manager of Insurance, Germany.
Gerety brings over 30 years’ experience to the Cologne-based role and joins from from Ironshore International, where he was Head of Continental European distribution since 2016.
“Our European business has aggressive profitable growth targets,” said Kadidja Sinz, LSM’s Head of Europe.
“Ronan’s excellent track record in business development, and extensive knowledge of the German insurance market, mean he will make a major contribution in delivering that growth.”
Gerety replaces Wolfgang Weis, who the company says is leaving the role to focus on broadening Liberty’s footprint in Austria and Eastern Europe. LSM believes these territories offer significant opportunities both with existing clients and new clients.
