In his new role as chief underwriting officer, partnerships and casualty reinsurance, Lefebvre will oversee the development and management of Hamilton Re’s relationships with AIG and Attune, the technology-enabled platform established by Hamilton, AIG and Two Sigma.

Susan Steinhoff, senior vice president, property, has been promoted to senior vice president, head of property reinsurance. Steinhoff will now lead Hamilton Re’s property reinsurance underwriting team.

Hamilton Re CEO, Kathleen Reardon said: "I’m delighted to announce these management developments at Hamilton Re. The new leadership structure is streamlined and efficient, enabling us to focus on strategic and execution imperatives as we define what it means to be a Tier 1 company in today’s market. It also plays to the significant expertise and experience on the Hamilton Re underwriting team and provides growth opportunities for up and coming talent in our company.

"I congratulate Tim, Claude and Susan on the role they’ve each played in establishing Hamilton Re as a nimble, client-focused and innovative company. I look forward to working with them and the rest of our employees as we continue to establish a leading presence in a rapidly evolving market," Reardon added.
