OdysseyRe Appoints New Execs for EuroAsia, London Market Divisions

January 6, 2015

Odyssey Re Holdings Corp. announced changes to its executive management team in two of OdysseyRe’s operating divisions, EuroAsia and London Market.

Isabelle Dubots-Lafitte has been named CEO for the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region. She will have business responsibility for EMEA, manage OdysseyRe’s offices in Paris and Stockholm and oversee the operational functions for the EuroAsia division. Prior to this appointment, she was the head of underwriting and marketing for all treaty business within France. She joined OdysseyRe in 1989.

OdysseyRe also appointed Gaël LePaïh as chief underwriting officer for EMEA. He has worked in various underwriting capacities during the past 24 years and will now oversee the underwriting operations in Paris and Stockholm, reporting to Dubots-Lafitte.

Lucien Pietropoli, who has run the EuroAsia division with great success during the past 15 years, is relocating to Singapore and will assume the position of CEO for the AsiaPacific region. Both Pietropoli and Dubots-Lafitte will report directly to Brian Young.

In the London Market division, André-François Rocque has been appointed chief underwriting officer, responsible for all treaty underwriting. He will report to Carl Overy, CEO of the London Market division. Rocque has served as an underwriter since 1987 and previously led London’s property underwriting team.

“Both the EuroAsia and the London Market divisions have been instrumental to OdysseyRe’s long-term success,” said Young. “I have no doubt our Asian operations will continue to thrive under Lucien’s leadership going forward and am equally confident that the expertise, dedication and leadership of Isabelle, Gaël and André will enable us to continue our solid performance and deliver the quality service our clients expect in today’s challenging market.”

“We would also like to thank Olivier Massot for his significant contributions to the company as the head of our Singapore office,” Young continued. We wish him the very best in his future endeavors.”
