QBE Puerto Rico Announces New CEO
SAN JUAN — QBE Insurance announced Wednesday that Luis Mathieu was named CEO of QBE Puerto Rico, effective February 1, 2017.
Mathieu, who has over 27 years of experience, currently works in the Miami office site as Head of Underwriting Latin America. As QBE Puerto Rico’s CEO, he will be responsible of leading the company’s strategy and growth in the local market, including continuous expansion of the island’s commercial lines, as well as overseeing the enterprise’s relations with its clients and business partners.
Alessandro Jarzynski, Chief Underwriting Officer, Latin America, said the company is “confident that Mathieu will lead the expansion of our business in Puerto Rico successfully, within our strategy of profitable growth for emerging markets.”
Before joining QBE in 2015, Mathieu held several top management positions in companies such as RSA Insurance LLC, Chubb Limited and Seguros Alfa, Colombia’s largest insurance group.
Mathieu’s designation will be official after QBE’s current CEO, Peter Rebrin, is transferred to San Pablo after being promoted to QBE Brasil, also effective on Feb. 1, 2017.
