The National Cargo Bureau (NCB) has announced the election of Sean Dalton (pictured above) as the new chairman of its board of directors, with his term set to commence on March 11, 2024.

Dalton will occupy the position for two consecutive one-year terms, succeeding Captain John Murray, whose tenure as chairman has concluded.

Dalton primarily holds the position of executive vice president and leads the marine underwriting division for North America at Munich Re. Additionally, he oversees the company’s global marine facultative operations.

Operating out of New York, Dalton is an active contributor to the maritime industry, engaging with several significant organizations.

He currently holds the role of vice president and is a member of the executive committee for the International Union of Marine Insurers (IUMI). His previous contributions to IUMI include participation in the Policy Forum and leadership as the chair of the IUMI Cargo Committee.

Beyond his involvement with IUMI, Dalton is also integrated into the American Institute of Marine Underwriters (AIMU), serving as both an officer and vice chairman, in addition to his role on their board of directors.

Prior to his role at Munich Re, Dalton held previous positions at Zurich North America, Travelers, Swiss Re, and Atlantic Mutual Companies. He was also a lieutenant for the US Navy Reserve for more than a decade.

“We are delighted to announce the election of Sean Dalton, EVP, head of marine underwriting, NA, Munich Re US, as chairman of National Cargo Bureau (NCB)’s board of directors. With his extensive experience in the Marine industry and leadership roles in organizations such as IUMI and AIMU, Sean is well-equipped to make a positive impact in his new role,” Munich Re said.

Elsewhere for the global reinsurer, Munich Re’s HealthTech division (MRHT) named Bilal Ramadan as its chief executive officer.
