Roache, who will report to Reinsurance Chief Underwriting Officer Tim Duffin, joins Hamilton Re from Hiscox Re, where he was head of Risk XS worldwide.

Roache’s 10-year tenure at Hiscox Re involved steady promotions to increasingly senior positions. Joining the organization in 2008 as a pricing/portfolio management actuary, he moved to underwriting in 2010. In 2015, he was promoted to head of Risk XS at Hiscox Bermuda and, in the following year, was given responsibility for overseeing risk excess globally.

Roache began his career in the industry in 2004 when he joined Rosemont Re as an actuarial intern. He subsequently joined Ariel Re in 2005, which used Rosemont Re’s infrastructure to establish a new billion-dollar insurance and reinsurance company. He was one of 11 original members of Ariel Re.


Willis Towers Watson named Omarkhan Tleugabilov as head of Willis Towers Watson Kazakhstan.

He will be leading a team of five from their base in Almaty, helping to grow the newly established office for Willis Towers Watson.

The new larger office enables Willis Towers Watson to offer more directly its full range of services and expertise to both local and global clients with an interest in Kazakhstan. Previously, the company operated in Kazakhstan through a smaller representative office.
