XL Catlin today announced the appointment of Lauren Tennant Pollock as Vice President, Emerging Markets based in New York. Commenting, Brendan Plessis, XL Catlin’s Head of Emerging Markets said: “XL Catlin’s Emerging Markets team is responsible for delivering on our commitment to providing (re)insurance solutions to developing regions across the world. Conceiving and building out these solutions requires innovative thought leadership. We simply cannot default to the products and models the industry has relied upon in mature markets but rather we need to build upon existing strategies in traditional (re)insurance and apply novel methods of product distribution. As we continue to play a critical role in expanding our global reach through disaster risk financing and microinsurance, we believe that Lauren has exactly the right experience and expertise to ensure we are out in front and driving the industry forward.” Mr. Plessis added: “As part of her new role, Lauren will also be involved in a number of our innovation projects, working closely with Sarah Street, EVP, Strategy and Innovation Initiatives.” Ms. Tennant Pollock has recently completed her MBA at Harvard Business School. While at Harvard, she worked as an advisor to Blue Marble Microinsurance, a consortium of leading insurers committed to designing creative solutions to enhance insurance protection in underserved regions. Prior to business school, she worked at Argo Group International, where she was responsible for emerging market operation strategy and product design, working in both their New York and São Paulo offices. Prior to joining Argo, Ms. Tennant Pollock worked at Guy Carpenter & Company in treaty brokerage. In addition to her MBA she holds a B.S. in Foreign Services from Georgetown University.
