Specialist (re)insurance broker THB has appointed Bob Reichenfeld as executive director for THB Europe, effective 1 July 2020.
Based in the Netherlands, Amstelveen, Reichenfeld will be responsible for leading THB’s treaty offering, working together with the facultative team to service the growing client base. He will report to Ricardo Borges, managing director of THB Europe.
Reichenfeld brings a wealth of experience within the Dutch and European reinsurance markets and joins the business from Aon Reinsurance Solutions Netherlands, where he served for 14 years, most recently as chief executive officer since 2006. Prior to this, he was at Delta Group for 16 years in multiple non-life and life reinsurance roles and spent the last six years as managing director, group reinsurance.
Borges said: “THB Europe sees plenty of opportunity to grow in the treaty market. Last year we recruited Zamira Thurnim to further develop our treaty book. Bob will have an overarching role and Bob’s experience and networks will add significant resources, experience and knowledge to our treaty team. His hire is a clear indication of THB’s ability to attract the very best and experienced professionals in the market. Although the world is still reeling from the effects of Covid-19 I am proud that THB is still able to make plans for the future so it is a great pleasure indeed to welcome Bob to THB to help drive our future business.”
Reichenfeld added: “I'm very excited and energised about my new position and I am confident that in this consolidating marketplace there is room and demand for THB Treaty. The treaty market presents significant opportunities for brokers that are able to add value for their clients. I embrace the Company's long-term ambition and highly value their entrepreneurial drive to make a difference. I can't wait to start and join the team.”
