Endurance appoints group actuary
Endurance Specialty Holdings, a Bermuda-based provider of property and casualty insurance and reinsurance, has appointed Scott Galiardo, currently senior vice president, as group actuary with oversight responsibility for Endurance's corporate actuarial, reserving and ceded reinsurance activities on a global basis.
Over his twenty-six year career, Galiardo has held a number of senior actuarial roles across both primary and reinsurance businesses and has also been responsible for ceded reinsurance purchasing. Galiardo is based in Endurance's New York office and reports to Joan deLemps, Endurance's chief risk officer.
"Scott's breadth of experience in both specialty insurance and reinsurance lines will serve us well as we continue to expand our specialty product capabilities and strengthen our market position," said deLemps.
Galiardo joined Endurance in 2010 from Odyssey Re Group where he most recently served as executive vice president and chief actuary and ceded reinsurance manager for its US insurance division, Hudson Insurance Group. Prior to that, Galiardo was senior vice president, chief actuary and director of Information Services at Odyssey Re.
