SiriusPoint has hired Andreas Kull as its new chief risk officer, the Bermudian carrier announced.

As CRO, he will oversee SiriusPoint’s risk management strategy. He will be based in Zurich, Switzerland and will join the firm’s executive leadership team, reporting to CEO Sid Sankaran.

Before joining SiriusPoint, Kull worked at Bernina Re, serving as CRO and member of the firm’s executive team.

Prior to that, he held CRO roles at Tokio Millennium Re AG (TMR) and Axa Winterthur. He also did stints at Ernst & Young, Converium and Zurich Insurance.

Commenting on the appointment, CEO Sankaran said: “Strong, disciplined risk management is essential to SiriusPoint’s disruptive and entrepreneurial approach,”

He added: “With his extensive industry experience, Andreas will ensure that our enterprise risk strategy and capabilities support underwriting excellence, enable our long-term transformational growth, and help us to deliver sustainable results.”

“I am delighted to welcome a risk professional of his caliber to the team as we continue to build out our global business,” he continued.

In September, the global specialty reinsurer hired Zurich’s Patrick Charles as head of Americas P&C insurance.

That appointment followed the news that Justin Brenden was hired to head the specialty (re)insurer’s actuarial organization, reporting to CFO David Junius.

In May, the (re)insurer hired Darryl Siry from ProSight as technology chief, and in April the company appointed Larry Hallett from RFIB as a senior vice president of casualty underwriting.

Last March, in an interview with this publication, Sankaran, then newly installed as CEO, said that SiriusPoint was open to the potential of additional hires and that it was focused on density of talent.
