He has continually raised the bar on our operations functions and systems, which I believe are now key competitive advantages for our company,” said Kevin O’Donnell, chief executive officer.

“We are pleased that Peter has agreed to serve in an advisory capacity at RenaissanceRe into the next year, even as he focuses on his family, his intense involvement in the economic development of Bermuda, his corporate directorships and other pursuits,” O’Donnell continued.
