In this new role, Don will report to Everest Re Group President and CEO Juan C. Andrade. He will be responsible for the development and implementation of Everest's risk management strategy, enterprise risk management framework, and related processes across the Group, including capital performance management and reserving. Don will also oversee the governance of the actuarial function.
Don's appointment elevates the enterprise risk management (ERM) function to the Executive Management Committee, and facilitates stronger integration of ERM with actuarial reserving, pricing and modeling functions.
Tom Passante, who has served as Everest's Chief Risk Officer since 2014, will remain a key senior leader in Everest's Global ERM function. He will now report to Mr. Mango and help lead the integration of this new ERM framework.
Juan C. Andrade, Group President and CEO of Everest Re, commented:
"Tom Passante has built a strong ERM foundation for Everest, and he will be integral to helping us elevate our risk and capital management framework to the next level. I am grateful for Tom's efforts and dedication in this critical area and I look forward to continuing to work with him."

"While working closely with Don over the last two years, Cameron has been instrumental in the transformation of Everest's actuarial pricing and cat modeling capabilities into a world class, modern era actuarial department. Cameron is a strong leader who truly exemplifies the Everest culture and will no doubt continue to be a critical enabler of our success into the future."
