Fidelis Names Swiss Re’s Brindle as Head of Sustainability
Fidelis Insurance announced Olivia Brindle as its new head of Sustainability. Brindle joins Fidelis from Swiss Re where she was an investor relations senior manager.
At Swiss Re, she interacted with a wide range of stakeholders – both internal and external – on topics of financial and strategic importance. This increasingly included involvement in sustainability, given the growing importance of these issues for investors.
“At Fidelis we believe that ESG has to pervade every area of our business including our underwriting portfolio, as well as our operations and investments. We are setting ambitious goals in every area of E, S and G and we aim to be a leader in all three,” commented Charles Mathias, group director of Underwriting.
“As such, we wanted to find a head of ESG who understands how the industry works and what stakeholders from policyholders to shareholders are looking for from a partner. Having worked as an insurance analyst at banks, and partnered with the ESG team at Swiss Re, we think Olivia will bring analytical skills, industry knowledge and a real passion to the role,” Mathias added.
