Guy Carpenter, the global risk and reinsurance firm, has strengthened its Australian operations with new offerings and six new hires.
Matthew Rose now assumes the newly-created role of principal, capital and strategy, to oversee its expanded range of advisory services. Rose brings 23 years of industry experience to the role, having worked at Suncorp, Wesfarmers Insurance and Zurich.
Joining him are Tom Harvey as catastrophe analyst, Kim Collins as head of broking property replacements and Teresa Aquilina as head of property and casualty underwriting. The firm has also relocated Samantha Dew and Valerie Badcock from London to lead the broking casualty placements and property division, respectively.
The appointments are in line with launch of an expanded range of services that will allow the company to shift from being a traditional reinsurance broker to a "holistic provider of insurance services." Its new advisory services include capital solutions, cost reduction and business optimisation, market analysis, risk management solutions and human capital solutions.
Guy Carpenter is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Marsh & McLennan Companies.
