ACE boosts environmental insurance team
ACE Group has appointed Udo Wegerhoff as environmental insurance manager covering the Germanic region in a move to strengthen its environmental offering across Continental Europe.
Udo Wegerhoff will hold responsibility for the development of ACE’s environmental liability insurance operations throughout the Germanic region. He will report to Andreas Wania, country president, ACE Germany, and Dorothee Prunier, environmental risk manager for Continental Europe.
Wegerhoff has 21 years of insurance industry experience, many of which have been spent in environmental insurance. In his most recent role at a large international insurer, he was responsible for the development and implementation of new solutions for environmental risks in areas such as biodiversity.
“Udo’s appointment now enables us to provide our brokers and clients throughout Germany, Switzerland and Austria with a dedicated expert in environmental risk,” said Andreas Wania, country president, ACE Germany.
“The environmental insurance market in our region is becoming increasingly sophisticated and we are pleased to welcome a recognised leader in this field to our growing team.”
