Sompo International, a Bermuda-based specialty provider of property and casualty insurance and reinsurance, has announced the launch of a global risk control services function within its insurance business. The team will work under the leadership of Victor Sordillo, vice president of risk control, to deliver advanced risk management programs and more traditional loss-control tools, the company said.
The team includes resources across the US and Europe, boasting certified experts in safety disciplines including industrial hygiene, ergonomics, fire protection, and product liability. It also includes experts in the transportation, environmental services, real estate, hospitality, construction, manufacturing and financial services sectors.
“By building a team of specialized risk-control professionals with in-depth knowledge of the risk exposures specific to our clients’ operations, we can deliver innovative and consultative risk-control services,” Sordillo said. “Advanced risk management programs provide value to our clients by reducing their risk exposure, identifying best-practice controls, improving efficiency and differentiating their business operations.”
“Working collaboratively with our dedicated underwriters and claims specialists, this expanded global risk control function will enhance the delivery of industry-leading services to Sompo International’s clients,” said Jack Kuhn, CEO of global insurance and chief underwriting officer.
