Aon Benfield pair take senior positions at new Bermuda-based venture


Third Point Reinsurance has hired Rob Bredahl as chief financial officer and chief operating officer, and Dan Malloy as executive vice-president, underwriting.

The experienced duo have both joined Third Point Re from Aon Benfield.

Bredahl was chief executive of Aon Benfield Securities and president of Aon Benfield Americas and Malloy was co-head of the specialty practice groups where he led a team that placed highly customised reinsurance treaties. 

Third Point Re said it will target similar types of reinsurance structures and lines of business that Malloy’s team focused on at Aon Benfield.

Third Point Reinsurance chairman and chief executive John Berger said: “I am thrilled that Dan and Rob will be joining Third Point Re. I have known both for many years and believe we are fortunate to have executives of their stature join our company. 

“I have worked with both across the table on several transactions and now look forward to working on the same team.”
