Everest Insurance has announced that Maria Grace is returning to the company as its new head of international property.
According to her LinkedIn profile, Grace was with the company originally between October 2016 and May 2021, when she was chief underwriting officer for property and inland marine. She left to take on a position as global head of property at Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty for eight months before returning to Everest at the beginning of the year.
Writing on LinkedIn, Grace said coming back to Everest was a ‘once-in-a-career opportunity’.
She wrote: “My excitement in coming back to Everest is that the international team is perfectly balanced and positioned for growth. While we have all the ambition, energy, and commitment of a start-up, we also have a 25-year-old brand renowned in the marketplace. ”
She added: “We have an exciting opportunity to build a strong foundation and grow a new international property insurance business. There is a real need for a different approach, and we are creating exactly that kind of business. Our priorities, capabilities, and culture are unique, and I look forward to sharing all of those with our clients and partners as we grow this special business. ”
