Independent specialist reinsurance broker BMS Group has announced several management changes within its US reinsurance actuarial and analytics team.
- Kirk Conrad has been promoted to the newly created role of chief analytics officer. Conrad will oversee BMS’s US reinsurance catastrophe analytics and actuarial divisions. He joined BMS as chief strategy officer in 2016 through the company’s acquisition of Advocate Re.
- Dave Spiegler, chief actuary, is retiring at the end of the year. He will remain with BMS in a consultative role after his retirement.
- The company’s actuarial team will now report to Kurt Johnson, executive vice president. Johnson is based in the company’s Minneapolis office.
“At BMS, analytical and actuarial capabilities are core to our strategy,” said Steve Korducki, US CEO for BMS. “We invest in the tools, talent and technology necessary to provide bespoke analysis and solutions that provide real value to clients, as our catastrophe analytics division did during the recent cat events. I am looking forward to continuing building out BMS’s analytics platform with Kirk, Kurt and Julie Serakos, who leads out catastrophe analytics team.
“I would also like to thank Dave Spiegler for his dedicated service. Our actuarial team has grown to what it is today under his leadership, and I am pleased he will be working with us in a consulting capacity for some time to come.”
