Denis Kessler, Chairman and CEO of SCOR, was elected “Industry Personality of the Year 2008” at the Worldwide Reinsurance Awards, organised by the monthly magazine The Review held on 3 September at the prestigious Dorchester Hotel in London. The title is awarded each year to a company head in recognition of their contribution to the insurance and reinsurance sector.
 
The award marks the strategic choices and efforts of SCOR’s management, which led firstly to the Group’s recovery and then to the attainment of its new dimension. Thanks to the acquisitions of Revios in 2006 and Converium in 2007, SCOR is now a Top 5 global multi-line reinsurer. The Group, now structured around six “hubs”, is actively pursuing the ambitious objectives set out in its three year “Dynamic Lift” plan. 
 
I am proud to have received this award, and to have been elected personality of the year by my peers. I would like to thank SCOR’s Board of Directors, management team and employees for the tremendous work that has been accomplished over the past six years, along with SCOR’s shareholders for their support”, said Denis Kessler after the ceremony.
