International re/insurance industry think tank, The Geneva Association (GA), has announced the additions of Lloyd’s of London’s John Neal, MetLife’s Michel Khalaf, and Reinsurance Group of America’s (RGA) Anna Manning to its Board of Directors.
The appointments of Neal, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Lloyd’s, Khalaf, President and CEO of MetLife and Manning, President and CEO of RGA, took effect June 10th, 2020.
Charles Brindamour, Chairman of The GA, commented: “I would like to welcome Michel Khalaf, Anna Manning and John Neal to the Geneva Association Board of Directors. I look forward to working with them to address the challenges before our industry and advance The Geneva Association’s important mission to promote insurance as a force for good.”
Neal was named CEO of the specialist Lloyd’s of London insurance and reinsurance marketplace in 2018, and has served as a member of The GA since 2013.
Neal said: “The Geneva Association is unique among think tanks for its deep understanding of the insurance industry, enabled by regular, meaningful interactions with its insurance CEO members. I look forward to helping guide the organisation’s ambitious research agenda on global risks, so that we can really impact society.”
Khalaf has served as President and CEO of MetLife and as a GA member since 2019. He said: “What we do as an industry forms a vital part of the social safety net and provides financial security for people across the world. In these challenging times, The Geneva Association will play a key role in shaping the conversation around risk, regulation and the future of insurance. I am honoured to join its Board of Directors.”
Manning first joined RGA in 2007, and was appointed President in 2015 and as CEO in 2017. She has been a member of The GA since 2017.
Manning commented: “As insurers and reinsurers, we strive to protect people and businesses during their most challenging times. The sheer scale of COVID-19 has made abundantly clear the responsibility and purpose of the insurance industry.
“The Geneva Association’s work to highlight insurance’s contributions to societal resilience is therefore more important than ever, and it is an honour to be a part of it.”
