PartnerRe reveals P&C and specialty leadership changes
Bermuda-based PartnerRe has appointed Charles Goldie, formerly CEO of specialty lines, as CEO of property/casualty, following the retirement of Tad Walker who previously held that role.
CEO Emmanuel Clarke will take the overall responsibility for specialty lines assisted by Greg Haft who has been appointed deputy CEO specialty lines. Haft will lead within specialty lines a newly formed unit of specialty property, marine and energy. Previously head of global catastrophe and property, North America, Haft has been responsible for catastrophe since he joined PartnerRe in 2013.
Goldie has headed up PartnerRe’s specialty lines business since 2010 and as a member of PartnerRe’s executive management team, has helped establish the company’s long-term strategy. Previously he held the position of SVP, head of specialty lines for PartnerRe US and from 2014 he was deputy head of PartnerRe Global, responsible for all PartnerRe global non-life business. He will relocate from Zurich to Stamford, Connecticut, US for his new role.
Clarke said: “As an established leader at PartnerRe, Charlie brings experience and stability for our clients and brokers in P&C who will continue to receive the same quality service from PartnerRe. Charlie’s success in building client relationships and delivering reinsurance solutions across a wide spectrum of markets will translate well to our P&C business.
"At the same time, I would like to congratulate Greg on his promotion to Deputy CEO Specialty Lines. His long and successful track record in property catastrophe coupled with his leadership skills made him an excellent choice for this position and I look forward to his support.
“In both cases, I am very pleased that we have been able to draw on the strength of our internal talent to fill these important positions and to provide meaningful opportunities for growth for our leaders.
“Finally, I would like to thank Tad for his important contribution to PartnerRe over the years. He has been a valued member of the executive management team and we are grateful to him for his work in helping to position PartnerRe’s future success. We wish him the very best for his future retirement plans."
