Swiss Re Corporate Solutions strengthens its North American leadership team with the addition of two senior executives, both based in Santa Ana, CA. Jennifer Knox joins the North America regional sales team as Senior Vice President and Sales Leader of the West Region. Michael Kwan joins the Casualty North America leadership team as Senior Vice President and Head of Excess and Surplus (E&S) Casualty.
Swiss Re Corporate Solutions is focused on strengthening its client and distribution relationships. Ms. Knox is tasked with generating new business, managing key broker and client relationships, and driving growth in the west region. With over 20 years of industry experience, she brings expertise from a wide range of industries and segments.
Sylvain Bouteillé, Head of Sales North America, says: "I'm delighted Jennifer has joined our team. She has a proven track record of developing new business and a vast network of client and broker relationships, which will enable Swiss Re Corporate Solutions to seize new growth opportunities in the west region."
Swiss Re Corporate Solutions also aims to increase its E&S casualty business. Mr. Kwan is responsible for leading the company's E&S Casualty team and growing its capabilities and revenue across North America. He is an established leader with 25 years of industry experience. He fills the vacancy left when Brian Evans, a 15-year veteran of Swiss Re, retired in April.
Robley Moor, Head of Casualty North America, states: "Mike's track record and strong underwriting background are a great fit for Corporate Solutions and our wholesale broker partners. His experience in primary and excess liability underwriting will help strengthen our E&S relationships and First Specialty's market presence."
