Both Rahman and Banerjee will report to Steve Walker, Executive Vice President & Chief Financial Officer at Protective.

“Pooja has significant industry experience and a deep understanding of the issues impacting our business,” said Walker. “We have a strong team in place, and Pooja’s leadership will help drive our enterprise risk management expertise and enable our continued growth.”

“We are equally excited about Deep’s moving into the role of SVP and Treasurer,” he continued. “In his time with Protective, Deep has already added tremendous value, and we are confident in his ability to continue advancing this important part of our business.”

Banerjee joined Protective in September of 2020 as VP Strategic Risk, before which he spent over a decade at S&P Global Ratings where he covered the insurance industry.

He will step into his new role on June 16, 2021, aligning with Lance Black’s transition to SVP, Acquisitions & Corporate Development, which was announced in March.
