Global advisory, broking, and solutions company WTW has announced the appointment of Alain Dufraisse (pictured above) as managing director of its Luxembourg Captive and Insurance Management Solutions (CIMS) office.
Dufraisse has over 30 years of industry experience, having held leadership positions in top insurance management organisations across Europe, including Barents Re and Aon. Part of this experience is leading the set-up, re-domiciliation and ongoing management of many insurance and reinsurance companies, including open market carriers, captives, and protected cell companies.
In assuming this newly created role, Dufraisse will report to Elizabeth Carbonaro, WTW CIMS regional lead for Western Europe.
“Alain will add strength to the in-domicile leadership team in Luxembourg and his appointment reflects the importance we place on this major European jurisdiction,” she said.
“What really struck me during my first discussions with the WTW management was their listening skills, focus on people, and dedication to their clients’ needs,” added Dufraisse. “I am delighted to be joining WTW and am determined to help grow its Luxembourg business significantly.”
