BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Former Swiss Re executive to head rival Scor

Thierry Léger

Scor SE said Thursday that former Swiss Re Ltd. Chief Underwriting Officer Thierry Léger would take over as CEO of the French reinsurer following the departure of Laurent Rousseau.

Mr. Rousseau, who was named CEO of Scor in 2021, has left to “pursue other professional opportunities,” the Paris-based company said in a statement.

François de Varenne, executive committee member in charge of investments, technology, transformation and group corporate finance, will be interim CEO until Mr. Léger joins in May, the statement said.

Mr. Léger joined Swiss Re in 1997 and held various positions of increasing responsibility. He was CEO of its life capital business before being named chief underwriting officer in 2020.
