Following 3 years at RSA on their graduate program, in January 2016, I joined Munich Re. I worked in the London Claims team, handling large first party claims from across the world, with a particular focus on the USA, Latin America and the Caribbean. I handled claims from significant global events, such as Hurricanes Irma, Maria and Harvey, the Californian Wildfires and the Peru floods in 2017. I also took part in various internal and external claims related initiatives. In February 2023, I relocated to Bogota with Munich Re and took on the role of Senior Claims Manager Property, South America. I handle large Facultative and Treaty Reinsurance claims from across South America and I regularly visit the local markets to visit clients, losses and other claims stakeholders. I also mentor and work closely with the more junior members of the team and manage significant Group Loss Exposures from Catastrophe events across the region
