Guy Carpenter today announced that Massimo Reina has been promoted to the position of CEO of Continental Europe and MENA, with immediate effect. He succeeds Peter Stubbings, who has taken up the position of Chairman of the firm’s Bermuda operations.
Formerly Head of GC Fac® International and the firm’s Italian business, Mr. Reina is now responsible for all of Guy Carpenter’s treaty and facultative operations in Continental Europe and the MENA region. He will report to Nick Frankland, CEO of EMEA Operations.
Commenting on Mr. Reina’s promotion, Mr. Frankland said: “We are extremely fortunate to have such breadth and depth of talent across the Guy Carpenter team.
