– USA, CT – TigerRisk Partners LLC, a leading risk, capital, and strategic advisor to the global insurance and reinsurance industries, today announced the appointment of Rob Bredahl as CEO, succeeding current CEO Rod Fox who will step to the role of Executive Chairman, effective immediately.
Mr. Bredahl, who was formerly President, joined TigerRisk in 2019, with the strategic goal of succeeding Mr. Fox as CEO. Mr. Bredahl and Mr. Fox have known each other for more than 40 years and first met at Middlebury College before working together at E.W. Blanch, Benfield, and then TigerRisk.
“I am delighted to take up this role and continue the momentum and growth Tiger has seen over the last year and move the company into a new and exciting phase,” said Mr. Bredahl. “The organizational changes we have announced this week signal the next step in our company’s evolution. This CEO transition has been planned for a long time and has been implemented just as the business is gaining incredible traction in the market.”
Mr. Bredahl, who will continue to be based in New York, added that when Mr. Ronda agreed to join the team from Aon, it was the right time to put in place the previously agreed succession plans for the well-known former Aon broker to take up the role of President.
Mr. Fox will now step up to allow Mr. Bredahl to take the helm. Mr. Bredahl added: “Rod will still stay in the business and be very hands-on, but the change will allow him to focus more on what he is great at – advising clients and prospects and doing deals.”
“This is an exciting time for the company,” said Executive Chairman Mr. Fox. “I am proud of what we have achieved, but it is now time for a new breed of leaders. I will still be working full-time in the business making sure clients are getting what they need and allowing the company to move forward. When Jim Stanard and I founded the company in 2008, naysayers gave the company little chance to thrive, and we are thirteen years on with a phenomenal market-leading team and a bright future ahead of us.”
