Suzanne Williams-Charles, ABIR’s Director of Policy and Regulations, said: “We are excited to have Sakile and Cree join our office this summer. Both were strong candidates and they impressed us with both their technical skills and enthusiasm for gaining industry experience. In the early weeks of their internship, they have hit the ground running.”

The spokesperson said, “Zuill and Dunn are part of the 2023 ABIR Intern Working Group [IWG], which includes all the paid interns working for Bermuda’s leading international insurers and reinsurers over the summer. ABIR will stage a series of professional development events for the IWG during July and August to add value and networking opportunities to the group’s experiences.

“ABIR has scheduled a climate roundtable, bringing together industry professionals with interns to discuss catastrophe reinsurance in Bermuda, a 90-minute skills workshop on the making of a polished professional in today’s working world, a workshop on interviewing and networking skills, and a Bermuda Insurance Market lunch-and-learn. Zuill and Dunn will assist with organizing the events.”

Ms Zuill said: “I’m excited to intern at ABIR. I look forward to learning more about the re/insurance industry in Bermuda and exploring my interest in compliance and regulation. I plan to return to the island next year upon completing my studies, so this internship is a great opportunity for me to establish relationships with professionals in the industry.”

Ms Dunn said: “I first learned about ABIR last summer interning with PartnerRe, when I was part of the 2022 ABIR Intern Working Group. As I learned more about ABIR’s role within the industry, I decided to apply for their summer internship. I’m grateful for this opportunity and look forward to gaining a deeper insight into the policy and regulations surrounding the industry.”

The spokesperson said, “This year marks the 30th anniversary of ABIR. Zuill and Dunn will help with the planning of events to commemorate the milestone later this year.”
