November 5, 2015

Bermuda-based PartnerRe Ltd. announced that Dan Bolgar, formerly CEO at AXIS Accident & Health Reinsurance, has been appointed Head of Health at PartnerRe effective November 16, 2015.

Mr. Bolgar will be based out of PartnerRe’s Minneapolis office reporting to Marvin Pestcoe, CEO Life & Health PartnerRe.

His appointment follows the announcement by Dennis Heinzig, Head of Health and President of PartnerRe America Insurance Company, that he will retire in 2016.

Commenting on the changes, Mr. Pestcoe said, “We welcome Dan’s experience and impressive track record in the accident & health sector and look forward to working with him at an exciting time for PartnerRe.

“While it is with regret that we say goodbye to Dennis, we wish him all the best in his retirement. He is an experienced and talented leader in the health reinsurance sector and has brought tremendous value to PartnerRe and to the industry over the years.”

Mr. Bolgar has more than 20 years’ experience in the accident & health reinsurance sector. Prior to joining AXIS, he was EVP at Willis Re responsible for their global A&H division.

Commenting on his new role, Mr. Bolgar said, “I am delighted to be joining the PartnerRe Health team at this exciting period for the Company. PartnerRe has an incredibly strong team and platform from which to build an even stronger presence around the world.

“I look forward to working with the team to deliver innovative accident & health solutions for PartnerRe’s clients and brokers.”

Mr. Heinzig was the CEO of California-based Presidio Reinsurance Group, a leading U.S. specialty accident and health reinsurance and insurance writer that was acquired by PartnerRe in 2012.

He will continue as President of PartnerRe America Insurance Company during the transition, reporting to Mr. Pestcoe.

Commenting on his decision to retire, Mr. Heinzig said, “It has been both a pleasure and an honor to work with the outstanding group of people within the Health division, the broader PartnerRe group, and our many brokers and clients.

“I have known Dan for many years and enthusiastically support his appointment. He will lead our team to more fully realize the value we can bring to our clients and I believe the future looks exciting under his leadership.”
