    Scott Reeves

    Head of Underwriting, Australasia
    Munich Re

    After coming to general insurance via superannuation and life insurance 20 years ago, Scott landed an actuarial role in a commercial insurance team, which provided the ideal environment for him to understand the value of blending actuarial science with a broader, more commercial outlook. Between 1999 to 2006 Scott expanded into reinsurance, working at St Paul Re, Employers Re and Swiss Re where he moved from actuary to underwriting, becoming the Asia Pacific Casualty Leader.

    From 2006, Scott worked in the captive reinsurance operation of IAG, followed by a significant change of direction in 2010 when – as a substitute for a mid-life crisis – Scott joined the Boston Consulting Group to take up the challenge of management consulting. 2011 saw Scott re-join the industry and commence with Munich Re in the role of Underwriting Manager, Casualty, moving to Head of Underwriting, where he is responsible for all lines across Treaty and Facultative for the Australia / New Zealand markets.
