Sirius Group has strengthened its casualty reinsurance team with the appointment of Erik Soria, who joins from QBE Re Bermuda, to Vice President of Casualty.
In his Bermuda based role, Erik will underwrite the firm’s casualty portfolio, reporting to Sirius Bermuda CEO Warren Trace.
Trace commented on the appointment; “I have known Erik for nearly his entire career and am thrilled that we could bring onboard a person of such high-caliber.”
“He brings to Sirius an extensive casualty background with an invigorating energy that complements nicely with our group-wide efforts to expand into this line.”
Prior to his appointment, Soria worked as VP of QBE Re Bermuda, where he started up their Bermudian P&C portfolios in 2014, gaining industry-wide acclaim and featuring as a “Rising Star” by Intelligent Insurer and a “Talent Shining Through” by Bermuda Insurance Magazine.
He boasts further experience working with Willis Re and Aon Benfield as a reinsurance broker.
Sirius said the firm began efforts to expand casualty reinsurance underwriting last year when Robert McFadden joined the New York office to lead the segment’s growth plans.
