What are your summer plans? For Paul Gressier (pictured), who was most recently head of structured risk at AXA XL Reinsurance, the agenda includes a new job – as he gears up to make the switch to Guy Carpenter in August.
Gressier will take the role of head of UK & Ireland motor and associated casualty, from August 09. The position is a new one for the firm, and will see Gressier become responsible for activities across the region, while also aiming to capitalise on local market knowledge to develop client-focused reinsurance solutions. He will based in London and report into Dean Jenner, who leads the UK & Ireland property and casualty business for the Marsh McLennan affiliated firm.
As Gressier was responsible for UK motor for 15 years during his XL Re Europe tenure, Kevin Fisher, chairman, UK, global specialities and London North America, at Guy Carpenter, is confident he can carry over that success.
“With considerable experience in the casualty arena and in particular the motor industry, Paul is well positioned to lead our operations in this highly technical and rapidly developing marketplace,” he said. “Combining extensive sector knowledge with comprehensive market data and wide-ranging analytical capabilities enables us to deliver market-advancing solutions for our clients.”
