Other members include: Bruno Meyenhofer, formerly CEO and Chairman of Partner Re Global; Morley Speed, Managing Director, Guy Carpenter; Göran Thorstensson, formerly CEO of Sirius International Insurance Corporation and Rolf Tolle, formerly Franchise Performance Director at Lloyd’s.
The Council will report to Nick Frankland, CEO of EMEA Operations at Guy Carpenter, and will work in collaboration with the firm’s EMEA Regional Leadership Group.
Mr. Frankland said, “We are delighted to have been able to assemble such an impressive group of market professionals, and in particular feel privileged to have attracted such esteemed industry figures as Bruno, Göran and Rolf to our business. I expect their contributions to be significant and to add materially to our increasing impact across the EMEA Region.”
