Swiss Re


I am a Canadian-Swiss born in Montréal in 1971. I was appointed as Head L&H Continental Europe, Middle East & Latin America Hub in October 2012.

I started my career at Vaudoise Assurances in Lausanne as actuary for the Individual Life team in 1994. In 1997, I joined Swiss Re in Zurich as a marketing actuary for L&H Belgium-Luxembourg. I then held various pricing actuaries and client manager positions in Portugal and Belgium-Luxembourg before taking over a team of client managers, marketing actuaries, underwriters and claims managers as Head of L&H Belgium-Luxembourg.

From April 2007 until September 2012 I was a key account manager in L&H with worldwide responsibility for 5 global clients.
I studied Mathematics / Actuarial Science at the University of Montréal where I graduated in 1994. In 2005 I became Fellow of the Society of Actuaries (FSA). I live in Zurich, and I'm married with two young daughters.
