LeadershipCEO Perspectives with Meg Green

Season 2, Episode 2: Greg Hendrick

CEO Perspectives Season 2 Episode 2.png

In this episode, Greg Hendrick shares how he used his math background to become a successful underwriter and how he sees the industry evolving to write more intangible risks. While he says he's math-centric and not a creative person, Greg explains how he came to create a company that has a different approach to taking risk, baking alternative capital into the business plan to move property catastrophe risk to the capital markets.

With a lot of advancement in insurtech areas around certain solutions, we could now do a much better job of building a company from scratch, making talent the first bedrock anchor, but data the second most important asset, and turn that into a data analytics company, which is what an insurance company is in the end.

    Juan Andrade is an adrenaline junkie and a risk taker, but has such a calm and measured approach to risk - a very thoughtful approach - it's no surprise he was able to rise to take the helm of Everest RE. Juan's passion for the insurance industry - how he sees it as a noble purpose - and his goal of getting ahead of emerging risks, rather than looking into the rearview mirror to see what has happened in the past, is inspiring.
