Strategic Risk Solutions (SRS) has opened offices in Zurich, Switzerland, and hired Markus Beck, Georg Balint and Maria Sandoval from Aon to develop business there.
Beck will become managing director at SRS in Switzerland when he takes office on April 1, 2021, leading the practice of Swiss insurance management.
Beck previously worked at Aon Insurance Managers in Switzerland and Liechtenstein where he was managing director of captive operations. He joined Aon in 2015 and has held several other roles, including senior risk finance consultant and chief compliance officer.
Beck began his career with Generali where he was executive officer for five years before moving to Hiscox in Munich where he was a senior underwriter for eight years. He has also worked at Nationale Suisse Group as a senior financial supervisor.
Balint, who has started at SRS, is also the managing director and leads the Swiss actuarial practice. At Aon, he has served as senior consultant and head of actuarial and analytics since 2017.
Balint started his career with KPMG in Germany and then worked as a group actuary at AXA in Switzerland for six years, before moving to Nationale Suisse Group where he was group actuarial manager and actuarial auditing for nine years.
In her new role, she supports European risk consulting operations, providing Swiss and Solvency II actuarial backup and risk management services.
Sandoval will take up the position of senior account manager on March 1, 2021, supporting clients domiciled in Switzerland. He also previously worked at Aon Insurance Managers in Switzerland and Liechtenstein, where he has been an account manager since 2016.
Prior to joining Aon, he was company supervisor at the Holcim Group in Zurich for 15 years.
Beck said: “I believe there is a strong need for an independent and unbiased source of consulting services and I am impressed by the SRS client-centered culture, high staff retention, low client turnover, and excellent client service.”
Brady Young, chief executive officer at SRS, said: “With a vigilant regulatory regime and a stable operating environment, Switzerland is a major market for SRS, so this is another milestone in our goal of expanding our company’s global reach.”
The three employees “will add depth to our European presence and operate as part of SRS ‘wider pan-European insurance management team,” added Young.
