Ms. Albo’s most recent position at Munich Re is member of the board of executive management, where her responsibilities have included property/casualty business and operations in Europe and Latin America, according to the statement.
Ms. Albo also has been a member of many industry boards including the Board of the Insurance Information Institute, the Board of the Reinsurance Association of America and the National Board of the Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation, according to the statement.
