Global reinsurance broker Gallagher Re has added Daniel Knüsli to its Strategic & Financial Advisory (S&FA) team.
He will be based in Zurich but will have a global role, according to the announcement. Knüsli will split his time between London and other international insurance hubs as needed by clients.
Bringing more than two decades of experience across underwriting, analytics and client service, Knüsli joins from Swiss Re where he spent 12 years and most recently served as Head of P&C Analytics, having begun his career as a casualty underwriter with Zurich Insurance Group.
As client demand for expertise and insight across the risk and capital spectrum continues, the hire of Knüsli is a valuable addition to the team, according to the broker.
Commenting on the appointment and the continued investment in S&FA, Andrew Newman, President of Gallagher Re, said: “As the pursuit of operational and performance improvement, capital optimisation and cycle management continues apace with all its inherent challenges, our clients have never needed access to strategic insight and analytical expertise more.
“At Gallagher Re we are uniquely positioned to provide that, as trusted advisors, right across the risk and capital spectrum. As such we are continuing to invest in our team of multi-disciplinary specialists, to provide the right mix of insight and guidance.”
He added: “The addition of Daniel to our global team, with his powerful blend of leadership and client advisory experience, combined with underwriting and analytical skills, represents another fantastic acquisition of talent to our team.
“As a diverse and expanding team we can support clients on any strategic and corporate challenge, whether that identifying new growth opportunities, implementing new products, digital transformation or performance analysis. We are delighted Daniel has chosen to join Gallagher Re to help us and our clients grow.”
