Miller is pleased to announce the hiring of experienced business development specialist, Safi Mebarki, who will be joining Miller’s Paris office on 5 July, 2021. Safi’s hiring forms part of Miller’s wider growth strategy in Europe, aimed at developing the range of (re)insurance services available to clients.
A key aspect of Safi’s role will be sourcing capacity for MGA, broker, and insurtech clients, whether through an insurer directly or through a reinsurance solution. He will also support the Paris and London teams in establishing delegated underwriting agreements, negotiating terms on behalf of clients and placing niche reinsurance treaties.
Pierre Guntzberger, Head of Miller Europe, commented: “We’re excited to have Safi joining us at Miller. His expertise will help our team to provide clients with highly technical support, and I’m confident clients will benefit from Safi’s network and ability to access capacity for both reinsurance and delegated authority solutions.
Safi brings with him an excellent understanding of the insurtech world, and the new innovation and distribution challenges for (re)insurers. He also holds solid relationships with reinsurance underwriters and cedants. This, along with his strong analytical skills, will also strengthen our team’s ability to construct optimised reinsurance strategies for our clients.”
Safi will be joining Miller from Wakam, where he has been an International Business Developer since August 2019, developing delegated underwriting partnerships across Europe for non-Life solutions. Prior to joining Wakam, Safi worked at Willis as a Reinsurance Actuary, modelling companies’ books of business to advise on reinsurance strategies aligned with their appetites. He also spent time as a Divisional Director for French speaking cedants, broking and placing reinsurance treaties in the Lloyd’s and international markets.
