Swiss Re America Holding Corporation Announces Executive Changes

Swiss Re announced the appointment of Philip K. Ryan as Chairman of Swiss Re America Holding Corporation board, effective October 1, 2012. In this function, he succeeds Walter A. Bell, who has served as the holding company board's chairman since September 2, 2008. Until May 2012, Ryan was Chief Financial Officer of Power Financial and Power Corporation of Canada. Ryan has also held various leadership positions in his 22 years with Credit Suisse in the US, Switzerland and the UK; most notably, Chairman of the Financial Institutions Group and Chief Financial Officer of Credit Suisse Group. In addition, Ryan will help Swiss Re focus on its strategic priorities in the Americas, while ensuring matters related to regulation, financial performance, and sustainability/resilience are supported. Once Ryan officially becomes Chairman of Swiss Re America Holding Corporation in October, Walter Bell will remain on as a director, formally retiring from the holding company board on April 13, 2013. Bell has been integral in establishing Swiss Re's leadership in using insurance to help governments and NGOs adapt to the consequences of climate change while building financial resilience to the impact of natural catastrophes. This includes forging partnerships between Swiss Re and USAID, as well as pioneering a parametric hurricane insurance cover for state governments.
