Insurance company PartnerRe has announced the appointment of Jacques Bonneau as its president and CEO.
Bonneau has been a member of the PartnerRe board of directors since February 2019, having served on the company’s audit committee and as the chairman of its underwriting and risk committee.
He also held the position of CEO of Ace/Chubb Tempest Re Group, as well as former group chief underwriting officer of Chubb.
Bonneau succeeds Emmanuel Clarke, who is leaving the company by mutual agreement to “pursue other opportunities outside the group”.
Brian Dowd, independent chairman of the PartnerRe board of directors, said: “We’re delighted that Jacques is assuming the role of CEO of PartnerRe.
“He brings over 40 years of experience in our industry, a strong track record in reinsurance underwriting and deep knowledge of our clients and brokers. He also has detailed knowledge and insight of PartnerRe’s people and business gained over the past two years as a valued colleague on our board.”
Bonneau added: “With our solid balance sheet and the strength of our relationships with brokers and clients, I’m truly excited about the great opportunities we have in front of us and at the prospect of building an even stronger PartnerRe.”
