Since Marvin first assumed the leadership of Life & Health in 2011, we have significantly expanded our offering to clients, most recently with the acquisition of Aurigen Re in North America. As Chief Risk and Actuarial Officer, Marvin has also strengthened our risk, capital and reserving teams and processes, ensuring they are well positioned for a new executive leader to build upon.”
