TigerRisk has signalled an intent to grow its global casualty business by appointing Josh Everdell as its new global head of casualty and head of global accounts.
The Connecticut-based firm said that Everdell’s specialty was in casualty reinsurance treaty placements. He will report directly to Tim Ronda, senior executive at TigerRisk.
Rob Bredahl, CEO of TigerRisk, said in a statement: “We are delighted to appoint Josh to lead our global casualty team. TigerRisk is committed to delivering world-class professionals and solutions to our clients. We see major growth opportunities in this space and Josh is one of the most experienced and capable professionals in the casualty world. He will be an integral part of our dynamic growth and his leadership will allow TigerRisk to take our casualty offering to the next level for our clients.”
Everdell joins TigerRisk from RenaissanceRe where he was head of US casualty and specialty. Prior to that, he was the managing director of Guy Carpenter where he handled casualty treaty placements and worked within the US casualty specialty practice to advise the company’s casualty clients, prospects, and broking teams.
Everdell said: “TigerRisk’s vision for building a strong culture, integrated platform, and depth of experience is distinctive and something I have admired. In the marketplace today solving problems for clients is becoming more complex and there is much opportunity for creativity and innovation. I have experienced passion for superior client service at RenaissanceRe and I look forward to being a part of the Tiger team, working alongside senior leadership to capitalise on market opportunities and help our clients succeed.”
Everdell joining TigerRisk this month is the latest in a slew of hirings that the company has made since the beginning of the year. In January, the firm hired Will Cheney and Joe Springer as partners, doing the same with Joel Hodges with February (also making him head of analytics, international).
The company followed this up in March with the appointments of James Loggie, who joined the global trade credit, surety, and political risk business (becoming partner, too); Bill Tuttle as partner and senior broker; Simon Chandler as head of reinsurance broking, programmes, and binders; and Richard Laird as partner.
