The Association of Bermuda Insurers and Reinsurers [ABIR] has elected its new officers for a two year term beginning on January 1, 2013.

Mike McGavick, CEO of XL Group plc was elected as Chair of the ABIR Board of Directors. He succeeds Arch Capital Limited’s President and CEO Constantine Iordanou who has now completed a two year term as ABIR Chair.

Elected as first Deputy Chair is Neill Currie, CEO of Renaissance Re Holdings Ltd. Elected as Second Deputy Chair is Stephen Catlin, Chief Executive, of the Catlin Group.

Brad Kading, ABIR President and Executive Director, noted that Mr. Iordanou’s leadership had been greatly valued by the membership as he guided the association at a critical time during the Bermuda Monetary Authority’s build out of its group supervision framework and enhancements to its prudential supervision regime. Mr. Iordanou guided the association through important meetings with European policy makers and through important consultations on systemic risk with the International Association of Insurance Supervisors.

      …Until he moved back to the States like all the other CEOs. Shouldn’t the Chair of ABIR actually live here? Its ok though because his deputy Stephen Catlin lives here. Oh, sorry, he lives in London. Both very successful people, but would, say, the Association of American Insurers hire a Chairman who lived in Bermuda. I didn’t think so.
