In his new role, Mr. Saper will be responsible for overseeing the company’s Treaty and Facultative activities in the Pacific region and will focus on further developing its growth strategy and strengthening its capabilities.

I am confident that Jeff will lead the Pacific forward to the next level and continue to grow our business in the region.”
