“Before entering the field of cat modeling, I was an underwriter,” he said. “Now I look forward to combining both of these skills to help clients make better decisions around capital management and risk transfer.”

TigerRisk said Keogh brings to his new role leading-edge analytics and technology expertise, years of experience in identifying and mitigating risk, and the ability to communicate with clients on various levels.

Keogh has been with Eqecat for the past three and a half years. He first joined Equecat in 2009 as senior vice president of strategic initiatives and became president in November 2010.

Prior to working at Eqecat, he was group executive officer of Risk Management Solutions (RMS), another major catastrophe modeler. Keogh started his insurance industry career as an underwriter at AIG and then moved into increasingly responsible underwriting positions at NAC Reinsurance and Swiss Re.

TigerRisk Partners is a privately held reinsurance broker and risk/capital management advisor founded in 2008 by Jim Stanard, a founder and former CEO of Renaissance Re, and Rod Fox, former CEO of the U.S. operations of Benfield. Based in Stamford, Conn., the firm has additional offices in New York, Minneapolis, Chicago, Atlanta, Raleigh, Dallas and London.
