Sfaif brings a “deep specialisation in capital markets and reinsurance convergence”

Mt Logan Re, Everest Re Group’s third party capital unit, today announced that Youssef Sfaif will be appointed chief operating officer, effective 1 July 2022. Sfaif will report directly to John Modin, president of Mt. Logan Re.
