The Association of Bermuda Insurers and Reinsurers (Abir) has elected Hamilton Insurance Group chief executive Pina Albo as its deputy chair.

Albo is the first woman elected to serve as an Abir officer and succeeds Validus Re chief executive Kean Driscoll. Driscoll stepped down from the role after his appointment as global chief underwriting officer for property and agriculture insurance at AIG.

Prior to joining Hamilton Insurance Group, Albo had a 25-year career at Munich Re where she held several senior positions including president of the reinsurance division at Munich Re America and head of casualty operations for Munich Re Canada.

Abir also announced Convex Group – a newly formed international specialty re/insurer founded by Stephen Catlin and Paul Brand – has been elected a member of the association.

Convex will underwrite re/insurance for businesses in both London and Bermuda with $1.8bn of committed capital. Convex co-founder Catlin had previously served as chair of Abir in 2015-2016.
