SCOR’s announcement of a new leadership team in the Americas acknowledges the completion of the integration and alignment that followed its acquisition of two large US reinsurers. We are one company with one culture, connected to the resources of SCOR’s global organization. Our path forward follows an uncompromising commitment to understanding client needs and working together to create opportunities.
I am honored to serve as CEO of SCOR Global Life in the Americas. Clients who know me know that I am a people person. I believe being “in the field” with clients is the best way to keep SCOR relevant as a reinsurance partner. So I will continue to spend a good deal of my time in the market.
This is why I am excited to have an individual with exceptional actuarial and financial talents as my Deputy CEO. Brona Magee brings the technical expertise that is so crucial to our business. She started with SCOR in 2006 at our Irish operation and assumed the position of CFO for SCOR Global Life Americas in 2013. As Deputy CEO, she will be responsible for all technical aspects of the business.
To focus more resources on our US clients, we now have a dedicated US market operation with Brock Robbins at the helm. Brock is responsible for life business in the US. He formerly held the position of Senior Vice President and Chief Pricing Actuary.
Bruce Lundeen has returned to the US to assume the role of Chief Pricing Officer for the Americas. Bruce served as Chief Pricing Officer for Asia, based in Singapore since 2011.
Michael Colannino, who has served in numerous technical and senior leadership roles in the organization, continues to head our operations in Canada and Latin America.
SCOR Global Life has made headway in deepening relationships and strengthening our value proposition for clients. While we are pleased with our progress, we are determined to keep improving our performance. On behalf of everyone at SCOR, I wish you a successful New Year and look forward to building on our partnership in 2016 and beyond.
