Swiss Re named Nikhil da Victoria Lobo as market executive for Western and Southern Europe (WSE) for reinsurance, effective 1 July 2020.
Victoria Lobo succeeds Claudia Cordioli who was appointed as Swiss Re’s chief financial officer (CFO) of the reinsurance business at the start of March 2020.
In his new role, he will be based in Zurich and will report to Urs Baertschi, chief executive officer (CEO) Reinsurance EMEA, Swiss Re.
He brings almost 20 years (re)insurance industry experience to the role, having started his career at Swiss Re’s Securitas Capital in 2001, before serving as an underwriter in the Latin America Facultative Property team.
In 2008, he joined Swiss Re’s PSS Division as one of its first client managers, and since then, he has initiated and developed relationships with senior government and business leaders in numerous countries, including the U.S., Canada, and Latin America.
Commenting on the appointment, Baertschi said: “In Nikhil we found a very strong internal successor for the WSE Market Executive role. Nikhil’s international outlook, languages and excellent client relationship skills make him the natural choice as the Head of our Western and Southern European markets.”
