SiriusPoint has appointed Rob Gibbs as president of its international business as well as CEO of SiriusPoint International Insurance Corporation.
Gibbs is set to join the company next week and, based in London, will be responsible for driving growth, development, and profitability within SiriusPoint’s international platform.
He will be responsible for the management and oversight of runoff activities and oversee the ongoing transformation of the SiriusPoint International platform, working closely for a handover period with outgoing CEO Monica Cramér Manhem, who announced her retirement last month.
Gibbs will report to Scott Egan, CEO of SiriusPoint, as a member of SiriusPoint’s executive leadership team.
Egan said: “I am delighted to welcome Rob to SiriusPoint. He is an exceptional underwriter, manager and leader, and brings a wealth of experience in markets critical to SiriusPoint. The ongoing evolution of our international platform, including the integration into that platform of our vital London business, is a priority for me.”
He added: “I see great opportunity to strengthen our performance as we refocus our offering, maintain operational and underwriting discipline and deliver outstanding client service. I look forward to working with Rob to execute our strategy and position SiriusPoint for profitable growth.”
SiriusPoint also announced that Anders Hjelm has been promoted to deputy chief executive officer of SiriusPoint International Insurance Corporation, effective December 12, 2022 and subject to regulatory approval. Hjelm will continue in his current role of the head of legal and compliance at SiriusPoint International.
Additionally, Jennifer Bowie has been appointed interim chief underwriting officer of SiriusPoint International, also effective from next week. Bowie has been head of outwards reinsurance since 2021, and has been part of Sirius Group, one of SiriusPoint’s predecessor companies, since 2016. Based in Sweden, she replaces Jan Onselius who is retiring, having served as chief underwriting officer.
Egan commented: “It is a pleasure to recognise the talent we have within the business, and I congratulate Anders and Jennifer on their new roles. They are seasoned professionals with experience in European re/insurance markets and Swedish domiciled companies, and they have a great deal to contribute to the growth and development of our international business.”
He went on: “I’d like to thank both Monica and Jan for their ongoing dedication and invaluable contribution as they support their teams in this transition.”
