Ralf WIEMERS will head the newly opened Swiss Re Corporate Solutions office in Hamburg

Swiss Re Corporate Solutions has opened an office in Hamburg, Germany, to grow its regional commercial insurance portfolio. Ralf WIEMERS, who joined the company on 1 July as Senior Client Manager and Head Hamburg Office, will lead the new operation.

The operation will serve large and upper mid-sized companies through their broking partners with a focus on primary Property, Casualty and select Specialty lines, such as Engineering & Construction and Renewable Energy. Located in Neustadt and already operational, the office will serve as a regional hub for primary commercial insurance business in northern Germany, covering Berlin, Bremen, Hamburg, Hannover and Lubeck

"This further step into Hamburg will expand our core German business and open up channels to grow our primary insurance offering," said Bijan DAFTARI, Country Manager of Germany, Swiss Re Corporate Solutions. "We've already had a local team working within the region for the past two years, but now, by solidifying our physical presence in northern Germany, we will strengthen existing relationships and capitalize on new opportunities with clients and brokers."

Ralf WIEMERS spent most of his 24-year career in the primary insurance sector in the Hamburg region and has held various executive positions in sales and claims.

"With his extensive industry experience and successful regional track record, Ralf is ideally suited to lead the new hub in Hamburg," said Mr. DAFTARI. "I look forward to working with him to provide clients and brokers in northern Germany with more localized services and solutions."

The Hamburg office is operating as a branch of the carrier Swiss Re International SE. 

Swiss Re Corporate Solutions currently serves clients and brokers in Germany from offices in Munich and Frankfurt, and across Europe from offices in Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Genoa, London, Madrid, Manchester, Milan, Munich, Paris and Zurich.
