TigerRisk Partners, a reinsurance broking and risk/capital management firm, announced that William (Bill) Keogh, will become a member of the company’s Decision Support Team.

Keogh comes to TigerRisk from EQECAT, where he previously served as president and director. Last week, EQECAT separately announced that Paul Little, a senior vice president, would become president of the catastrophe modeling firm upon Keogh’s resignation.

“With his years of experience as a top executive at two of the three leading catastrophe modeling firms, Bill will be an invaluable resource to our clients,” said Rod Fox, CEO and co-founder of TigerRisk, referring to Keogh’s work at EQECAT and a prior position as group executive officer of Risk Management Solutions.

Keogh started his insurance industry career as an underwriter at AIG and then moved into increasingly responsible underwriting positions at NAC Reinsurance and Swiss Re.

In his new capacity, TigerRisk says Keogh will help clients with innovative ways to use TigerRisk’s sophisticated analytics approach to find capital solutions to mitigate property-catastrophe risk.

“Before entering the field of cat modeling, I was an underwriter,” Keogh said in a statement. “Now I look forward to combing both of these skills to help clients make better decisions around capital management and risk transfer.”

TigerRisk Partners is a privately held reinsurance broker and risk/capital management advisor co-founded in 2008 by industry veterans Jim Stanard, a founder and former CEO of Renaissance Re, and Fox, who formerly held positions as CEO of Praetorian Financial Group and Benfield’s U.S. reinsurance platform.
