Previously serving as the Chief Operating Officer of Gallagher Re North America since 2021, Hansen brings extensive experience to his new role. Before joining Gallagher Re, he dedicated nearly two decades to Willis Re North America, holding key positions such as Chief Operating Officer and Director of US Operations. Hansen initiated his insurance career at E.W. Blanch Co. “Mark’s experience on the North American executive committee, along with his exceptional leadership, insightful contributions and commitment to Gallagher Re, make him an ideal candidate for this role,” Wakefield said. “We are excited to have filled this position from our existing expertise and leadership.” Hansen will step into the role following a transition period with departing COO Chris Brook, Gallagher Re said. This announcement follows Gallagher Re’s recent appointments, including Jonathan Allard as Managing Director and Head of the newly established Global Credit and Political Risk team. Additionally, Andres Posada was named Executive Vice President and Head of Sales for the Latin America and Caribbean region.
