Reinsurance brokerage, risk and capital strategic advisory firm TigerRisk Partners LLC has announced that its President, Tony Ursano, will be stepping down and leaving the organisation.
Ursano joined TigerRisk in 2015 to help build the company’s reinsurance broking and investment banking practices into a holistic risk solutions provider and advisor.
Rod Fox, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of TigerRisk, commented on the announcement: “Tony had informed the Board in January of his long-held desire to pursue other interests. He agreed to remain with us into May to see a number of important mandates through to completion.”
“He has built a strong franchise for us which will continue to grow,” Fox added. “Naturally, we’re sorry to see him go and wish him the very best.”
Prior to TigerRisk, Ursano was CEO of Willis Capital Markets and Advisory, before which he spent almost 10 years at Banc of America Securities, where he held senior positions in the Financial Institutions Group.
“I have enjoyed my time at TigerRisk,” said Ursano. “I am proud both of the progress the firm has made over the last four years as well as the world-class capital markets and advisory franchise we have built.”
“I am certain that 2019 will be Tiger’s best year ever and I look forward to watching the firm’s incredible trajectory of success,” he continued. “I wish each and every Tiger the very best and I look forward to staying in touch with you in my next adventure.”
Fox explained that partners Jarad Madea and Stephen Fromm will assume Ursano’s responsibilities upon his departure.
