Allied World Assurance Company Holdings, Ltd. has established a healthcare division through its European operation, Allied World Europe, to sell health insurance solutions in European Markets.
Allied World Assurance, which offers property, casualty and specialty insurance and reinsurance solutions as well as a growing international health insurance unit, intends to use the new European health insurance section to target business specifically in London, as well as throughout the UK and the rest of Europe. The new healthcare solutions division in Allied World Europe will be headed by Rob Wendin, who joined Allied World Europe as Vice President.
Mr. Wendin previously worked as the Managing Director for Health and Life Sciences industries at Marsh, covering Europe, the Middle East and Africa. With over 25 years of experience in multiple facets of health and life related industries, including having been a broker as well as underwriter, Mr. Wendin is now tasked with building Allied World Europe's healthcare division, including the development of a full health insurance product suite to service European regional needs. He will report to Kirsten Faria, Senior Vice President of International Healthcare and Allied World Assurance's Bermuda subsidiary.
Kirsten Faria said that "We are thrilled to launch Allied World Europe's healthcare department to build on our steadily growing international healthcare segment. I am confident that Rob's extensive experience on both the underwriting and brokerage side will be an invaluable asset as we begin building a strong book of business."
