We are delighted to welcome Humberto, who brings with him extensive experience and an in-depth understanding of the unique challenges of our clients and brokers in that region. He will provide strong leadership for our Latin America team and a customer-centric point of contact for our Latin American clients looking for reinsurance solutions that align with their risk needs.
“I would also like to thank Salvatore for his valuable work over the years in representing PartnerRe in this important market. Going forward, he will be able to devote his full attention to his role as PartnerRe’s Head of MEAR, another key region for PartnerRe’s future success.”
