New York, Munich. The Insurance Leader of the
Year accolade, presented annually since 1995, is awarded to
industry leaders for distinguished achievement over a long career
or for special achievement in the year of recognition.
Nikolaus von Bomhard is to receive this honour for 2012. According
to Brian Duperreault, President and Chief Executive Officer of
Marsh & McLennan Companies, Inc., as well as
Chairman of the Board of Overseers of the School of Risk
Management, and Brandon W. Sweitzer, Dean of the School of Risk
Management, the decision to select Nikolaus von Bomhard was based
on widespread admiration for von Bomhard's corporate stewardship in
service to all Munich Re stakeholders, his widely acknowledged
personal approach to leadership and his stance on economic and
political issues in these testing times.
The School of Risk Management was founded in 1901 as the Insurance
Society of New York. It was merged with St. John's University, New
York, in 2001. The official awards ceremony will take place on 16
January 2013 in New York.
