Swiss Re names Gonzalez CEO of Corporate Solutions

Today, Swiss Re announced the appointment of Ivan Gonzalez, currently CEO Reinsurance China, as the new CEO of Corporate Solutions, effective July 1, 2024, replacing Andreas Berger. Gonzalez will also join the Group Executive Committee concurrently.

Gonzalez, presently the CEO Reinsurance China and China Country President, responsible for overseeing both Property & Casualty and Life & Health businesses, is set to become the CEO Corporate Solutions effective July 1, 2024.

Before his current role, Gonzalez served as the head of the Corporate Solutions Business Unit in the Americas from 2017 to 2021 and Latin America from 2011 to 2016. Since joining Swiss Re in 2001 through the company’s Graduates programme, Gonzalez has also held positions in Asset Management and Group Strategy. Gonzalez will be relocating from Beijing to Zurich in July.

Christian Mumenthaler, Group Chief Executive Officer, Swiss Re, said: “I am pleased that we were able to appoint such a strong internal successor to lead Corporate Solutions. Ivan has deep knowledge of Corporate Solutions, after spending ten years in leadership roles there and helping to reposition the business from a generalist capacity provider to a specialised risk partner. He also brings a global mindset, unique international experience – having worked in Beijing, Singapore, New York, São Paulo and Zurich – and proven leadership capabilities to the role.”

Additionally, Swiss Re has announced that Moses Ojeisekhoba, the current CEO of Global Clients and Solutions, will resign from his role effective August 31, 2024, to explore new opportunities beyond the company.

The operations under Swiss Re’s Global Clients and Solutions Business Unit will be redistributed to other segments within the Group.

Mumenthaler added: “Over the past 12 years Moses made great contributions to the success of Swiss Re. After significantly growing our business in Asia in his first years with the company, he was instrumental in ensuring that our Reinsurance businesses are in a strong position today.”

“Moses was the architect behind our Reinsurance Solutions unit, which is gaining traction, and played a key role in making the Group’s 2023 reorganisation a success. He also led the strategic review of iptiQ, which resulted in the announcement today that Swiss Re plans to withdraw from iptiQ over time. On behalf of the entire executive team, I would like to thank Moses for his exceptional leadership, dedication and commitment. We wish him all the best for the future.”
