Berger Joins Mumenthaler as CEO in Swiss Re

Swiss Re Bounces Back with New CEO Appointment, Focuses on Future Growth and Development

In 2023, Swiss Re posted strong annual figures for the first time in a while, despite facing challenges in previous years and falling short of investor expectations multiple times. The reinsurer’s share price has not performed as well as its competitors in recent years. Despite this, Andreas Berger has been appointed as the new CEO of Swiss Re, succeeding Christian Mumenthaler.

Berger currently heads the Corporate Solutions business unit at Swiss Re and is seen as the right leader to steer the company into its next phase of development, according to Jacques de Vaucleroy, vice president of the Swiss Re board of directors. The appointment of Berger is viewed as a positive move by analysts like Georg Marti and Michael Klien from Z├╝rcher Kantonalbank (ZKB), who believe that his leadership will be well-received by the market.

The upcoming change in the chairman of the board of directors, with de Vaucleroy likely to take over, is seen as part of the ongoing realignment of Swiss Re. The departure of Mumenthaler is expected to occur regardless of this change, as the company looks to move forward and build on recent successes. With Ermotti’s return to UBS after a brief stint at Swiss Re, the company is focused on maintaining a results-oriented approach under new leadership. The appointment of Berger as CEO is seen as a step towards ensuring continued growth and development for Swiss Re in the future.
