Juan C. Andrade, Everest Re Group
President and CEO
Everest Re Group, Ltd.
When Juan Andrade took over as president and CEO at Everest on January 1, 2020, nobody could have foreseen just how challenging this year would be. Still, he’s weathered the literal and metaphorical storms and steered Everest to greater success. During the pandemic, he not only guided the company’s transition to a virtual work environment, but also led it to report second-quarter gains of $2.4 billion in gross written premium and earn the distinction of being named a Best Place to Work in Insurance by Business Insurance and Best Companies Group.
What’s his key to success? “I have worked in every part of our industry: underwriting, claims, general management, commercial, consumer, international, domestic, primary and reinsurance,” Andrade says. “I have worked for large companies and smaller companies. I have built businesses and have bought businesses.”
Andrade has also overseen new diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives at Everest to attract and support marginalized groups in insurance and help counter systemic racism. “There needs to be a much greater focus on diversity and inclusion,” he says.
