New York. Since 1995, the
“Insurance Leader of the Year
Award,” presented annually, recognizes the
contributions of outstanding individuals whose leadership in the
worldwide insurance and financial services industry sets them apart
from their peers.
"Selecting Nikolaus von Bomhard as the Insurance Person of the
Year is an easy and overdue choice. It is his remarkable leadership
of Munich Re and across so many spheres, on behalf of the entire
industry, from building sensible future regulation to getting
serious about climate change and social responsibility that are the
efforts that set Nikolaus so fully apart and demand our collective
recognition and praise”, commented Mike
McGavick, Chief Executive Officer of XL-Group plc., Honorary Dinner
Chairman of the 2012 Award Dinner and a member of the School of
Risk Management's Board of Overseers.
“I am sincerely honored to be selected for
as Insurance Leader of the Year and I recognize only too well how
few non-Americans have been honored in the
past”, said Nikolaus von Bomhard during his
speech at the Award Dinner.
The School of Risk Management was founded in 1901 as the Insurance
Society of New York and over the years evolved into The College of
Insurance (TCI). Located in New York City’s

M.S. degrees in the insurance, risk management and actuarial
science disciplines. Through its Center for Professional Education,
