Howden Re Appointed Chairman For Global Clients Strategy

Howden Re has appointed David Hearn as chairman, global clients strategy, with the reinsurer announcing the hiring during a period of significant growth and international expansion for the company.

With over 42 years of experience in global reinsurance broking, Hearn most recently held the position of executive vice president at Guy Carpenter. In that role, he was part of the global account advisory group, managing the firm’s largest global client engagements.

Prior to his tenure at Guy Carpenter, Hearn served at Willis Re from 1994 to 2015 in a similar capacity.

The firm noted that Hearn’s addition is part of Howden Re’s strategy to build industry-leading expertise. As chairman, global client services, Hearn will support leadership and client service teams in advising large, multi-product insurance companies with international operations.

Hearn, meanwhile, remarked on Howden Re’s growth and his decision to join the company.

“Coming out of retirement required joining a team that is truly special and focused on the critical disciplines required to be successful in the reinsurance brokerage business,” he said. “I have had the opportunity to work with many great clients over my career and I am very much looking forward to becoming part of such a client-centric team, working alongside elite operators, and contributing to the company’s continued growth.”
