Public insurers appoint Achim Bosch

to their reinsurers' board

The supervisory bodies of Deutsche Rückversicherung AG and the Association of German Public Insurers have today decided to appoint Achim Bosch (53) to the executive board of the two reinsurers, where he will be responsible for non-life reinsurance.

Bosch will be coming from General Reinsurance AG in Cologne, where, as a member of the board of executive directors, he has most recently been in charge of non-life contractual reinsurance in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Netherlands and Central and Eastern Europe since 2008. He has also been responsible for facultative business in these markets since 2017.

Bosch will take up his post as Chief Underwriting Officer for Deutsche Rück and the reinsurance division of the Association of German Public Insurers with effect from 1 January 2019. "We're pleased to have gained an experienced specialist for this responsible position in our companies. Mr Bosch has excellent knowledge and his qualifications are the ideal match for the remit we have outlined," said Dr Frank Walthes, Chairman of Deutsche Rück’s Supervisory Board.

Frank Schaar, CEO of the two reinsurers, added: "I am confident that Achim Bosch will give fresh impetus to the development of our reinsurance activities in our target markets and will provide valuable services."
