MS Amlin AG announces new chief underwriting officer

Global reinsurer MS Amlin AG (MS AAG) has announced the appointment of Charles Goldie as chief underwriting officer. Goldie will step into the role early in the first quarter of 2021, subject to regulatory approval. He will report to MS AAG CEO Charles Beazley.

Goldie has more than 30 years of industry experience. Prior to joining MS AAG, he served as CEO of P&C for PartnerRe. During his 16-year tenure at PartnerRe, Goldie held several other positions, including deputy CEO of PartnerRe Global and CEO of PartnerRe Specialty Lines. He began his career in actuarial and consulting roles.

Chris Hayward, who has been acting as interim chief underwriting officer since September, will return to his previous role as CUO of MAS AAG’s Bermuda branch.

“I am delighted to welcome Charles to MAS AAG as chief underwriting officer. Charles brings a wealth of experience to the business, alongside a strong track record of holding leadership positions within large, diverse, multi-jurisdictional businesses,” Beazley said. “His insight and experience of managing underwriting portfolios in our key markets will be critical for our next stage of growth. I am confident he will prove an invaluable addition to the MS AAG team.”

Beazley also recognised Hayward for his “strong leadership” as interim CUO.

“We are grateful for his ongoing significant contribution and continued commitment as he supports Charles in assuming his new role,” Beazley said.
