Munich Re wants to make a bigger impact

We talked to Philipp Wassenberg about the special features of the Canadian insurance market and his first experiences in his new home.

Topics: How was your relocation from Germany to Canada?

Philipp Wassenberg: A move like this is exciting, but it can be fairly turbulent as well. My family and I gave up our old life in Germany to start afresh in the metropolis of Toronto and you should not underestimate the impact that such a
change can have.

What are the biggest challenges on the business front?

First of all, I had to get used to the fact that the focus of my activities had fundamentally changed, from purely operational responsibilities to managing a company. One major challenge we face at the moment is to mesh more closely with Head Office in Munich so that we can make more effective use of Group know-how and resources. This will allow us to make a bigger impact on the local market. Even though we are the number one reinsurer in the country, the competition never rests.
