Swiss Re today announces that Andreas Berger, currently Chief Regions & Markets Officer and Member of the Board of Management of Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty SE, is appointed CEO Corporate Solutions and member of the Group Executive Committee with effect from 1 April 2019. He succeeds Agostino Galvagni, who has decided to step down from Swiss Re at the end of 2018. He will remain available as advisor to Swiss Re during the transition period.
Agostino Galvagni has worked for Swiss Re for more than 30 years, holding various leadership roles. In 2009, he was appointed Chief Operating Officer and member of the Group Executive Committee. He became CEO Corporate Solutions in October 2010, where over the years, he has been instrumental in growing Swiss Re's commercial insurance business and expanding its global presence with a network structure now extending to over 80 countries.
Andreas Berger joins Swiss Re with more than 20 years of experience in the insurance industry. Most recently, he has served as Chief Regions & Markets Officer and a Member of the Board of Management of Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty SE, with a focus on growing the business in the regions of Germany and Central & Eastern Europe, Mediterranean and Africa. Prior to that role, Andreas Berger held various leadership positions at Allianz Group, including Chief Executive Officer, Regional Unit London, from 2009-2011 and Global Head of Market Management & Communication from 2006-2009.
Swiss Re Chairman, Walter B. Kielholz, says: “We regret Agostino Galvagni's decision to step down, and I would like to thank him on behalf of the Swiss Re Board of Directors for his substantial contribution to Swiss Re throughout the years. Under his leadership, Corporate Solutions has grown significantly and evolved into a fully-fledged commercial insurer with global presence. Thanks to its recent entrance into the primary lead market-segment, Corporate Solutions is also ideally placed for further growth. We will miss Agostino's experience and drive and wish him all the best for the future.”
Walter B. Kielholz continues: “With Andreas Berger's appointment, we are pleased to have attracted a very capable candidate with a strong track record in the insurance industry to continue leading our Corporate Solutions' business and further improve its international business capabilities.”

The most recent data published by the National Violent Death Reporting System identifies that, in 2015, 83 suicides occurred in medical facilities. According to the CDC, the suicide rate in the US has increased more than 25% from 1999 to 2016 and 54% of those who died by suicide in that period did not suffer from a mental health condition. They report that suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the US, taking more than 40,000 lives a year. We are aware that most inpatient suicides are the result of hanging, most commonly using a door or its handle or hinge; a head, handle, bar or door in the shower; a ceiling or sink pipe; or another type of fixture as the ligature fixation point. Join us to hear from the team at Garden City Hospital to learn about their journey with identifying and monitoring patients at risk for suicide and removing the means to accomplish suicide in the physical environment.Learn more
