Hamilton recruits senior AIG exec to target US


Hamilton Insurance Group, the Bermuda-based holding company for property casualty reinsurer Hamilton Re, has appointed William Thygeson, formerly of AIG, as chief operating officer (COO) of Hamilton USA, the banner under which the group’s US operations are being developed.

Thygeson joins Hamilton USA from AIG where he held a number of executive-level positions in the US and Japan, most recently as senior vice president and deputy business transformation officer in AIG’s New York office.

Prior to joining AIG, Thygeson was employed from 2001 to 2005 at MBNA America Bank, overseeing targeted marketing strategies that realised distribution efficiencies and bottom-line profit for MBNA.

Conan Ward, Hamilton USA chief executive officer, said: “It’s a real pleasure to welcome Bill to our organisation. With almost 15 years’ experience in the strategic management of a broad spectrum of operational functions, Bill brings the right skill set to the job of establishing our US platform.”

Thygeson said: "I am excited and honoured to join the Hamilton team. I look forward to helping Conan build an innovative and highly efficient company.”
