Sompo International boosts board with new executive director

A familiar face at Sompo International Holdings has been tapped to serve as an executive director.

Christopher Gallagher, who came onboard in 2015 and is currently the chief risk officer and group actuary of Sompo International’s commercial property and casualty business, is boosting the specialty (re)insurer’s board in his new role effective immediately.   

A Fellow of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries in the UK, Gallagher is experienced in providing insurance and actuarial advisory services in the London insurance market. He also worked at a property and casualty carrier prior to moving to Sompo International.

“I am delighted that Chris will be joining the board of Sompo International Holdings,” commented executive chairman John Charman. “I have had the privilege of working with Chris for over 15 years and have great respect for his leadership skills, his depth of industry knowledge, and his broad global insurance and reinsurance experience.

“Our industry will continue to face many major challenges in the years to come and I am confident that Chris and the executive leadership team at Sompo International Commercial P&C are incredibly well positioned to build our company into a market-leading, truly transformational global insurance/reinsurance company.”

Headquartered in British overseas territory Bermuda, the Sompo Holdings company writes agriculture, professional lines, property, marine, energy, casualty, and other specialty lines of insurance as well as catastrophe, property, casualty, professional lines, weather risk, and specialty lines of reinsurance.
