Most recently, he led Swiss Re’s large clients division in Germany and was accountable for the inforce and new business development of large German P&C clients. He also served on the leadership team for the Northern, Central and Eastern European P&C markets, with a proven track record in expanding P&C treaty portfolio. Previously, Render held various responsibilities, including client management and underwriting in France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Spain, Portugal, and Latin America.

Matteo Cussigh, Chief Executive Officer of Peak Re AG, says: “We are delighted to welcome Mr Render to join our international client markets team.
