Platinum CFO William Robbie stated: “We are pleased to welcome Justin to the Platinum finance team. Many of us have worked with Justin in the past and we have been consistently impressed with his financial acumen and professionalism. We believe that he will make many important contributions as we continue to establish Platinum as a leading property and casualty reinsurer.”
