Catastrophe risk modelling and analytics firm RMS has appointed Oliver Nieswandt as Managing Director of Continental Europe.
Based at the RMS Zurich office, Nieswandt replaces Christer Pehrson who, after completing an assignment in Europe, is due to move to the company’s office in New York.
Nieswandt started out his career at Hannover Re developing systems for catastrophe risk accumulation, reinsurance treaty administration, and underwriting.
He then carved out a successful tenure at SAP where his roles included Global Client Director for Allianz and Munich Re, Client Executive, and manager of custom development projects.
“I am excited to have Oliver joining the RMS team as he brings a wealth of experience in insurance, software, and services to our business,” said Neil Isford, Executive Vice President, RMS.
“Oliver is viewed by his former managers, employees, and customers as an excellent collaborator who is very focused on developing and supporting his team, as well as being a strong advocate for his clients.”
Commenting on his appointment, Nieswandt added, “RMS’s reputation for client service, technological innovation and scientific rigor is second to none.”
“As businesses and organisations increasingly want to better understand the risks they might face, risk modelling becomes even more important, not only in the boardroom but in society as a whole.”
