Peak Re brings in new chief underwriting officer

Peak Reinsurance Company (Peak Re) has announced the appointment of Piotr Nowakowski as its new chief underwriting officer.

Nowakowski is currently Peak Re’s director, head of product underwriting for property and casualty (P&C). Before joining the Hong Kong-based global company in January, he was the chief underwriting officer at Echo Re Switzerland for almost 10 years. He has also held a number of local, regional, and global positions at SCOR, including general manager at the French insurer’s Japan office and head of strategy & development and general secretary for its global P&C business in Paris.

As Peak Re’s chief underwriting officer, Nowakowski is set to lead the P&C business team, focusing on underwriting expertise, portfolio management, and solution development. He will be reporting to CEO Franz Josef Hahn.

“I would like to congratulate Piotr, who has been with us since January 2022, on his new role,” Hahn said. “Bringing with him more than two decades of global reinsurance experience, Piotr’s technical expertise, international experience and underwriting capabilities greatly enhance our cooperative underwriting model, and we are confident that his leadership will help drive the company’s further sustainable and profitable growth.”
