Miller, the leading specialist (re)insurance broker, today announces the appointment of Gérald Castanier to develop and lead a new European leasing practice.
Gérald reports into Arnaud Froideval, Head of Credit and Political Risks for Europe, and will be based in Paris while working closely with Miller’s London and Geneva offices.
Leasing insurance provides protection for banks, corporates and funds acting as lessors from the non-payment of the rent. Miller’s offering will also seek to include bespoke solutions that enable clients to access additional coverage for political violence and the residual value of insured assets.
Gérald joins Miller from Aon, where he developed its leasing solutions practice. Gérald started his career at Societe Generale, holding a number of trade finance roles, before moving to Deutsche Bank where he worked as VP Sales Trade Finance Officer for 12 years.
Arnaud Froideval, Head of Credit and Political Risks for Europe, commented: “I’m pleased to welcome Gérald to Miller to lead the launch and development of our new leasing practice. Gérald brings strong experience in credit and trade finance and a proven entrepreneurial mindset, and I look forward to the growth of this new offer for Miller’s banking and corporate clients.”
Gérald Castanier said: “I’m delighted to be joining Miller to develop its leasing practice, a large addressable market for which I believe Miller can create a differentiated proposition, I look forward to working closely with Arnaud and my new colleagues across London and Europe. Miller’s significant ambitions for Europe make this an exciting time to join.”
