Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance has established a new Catastrophe Engineering & Analytics group, under the leadership of former AIR Worldwide executive Akshay Gupta SVP and Head of Catastrophe Engineering & Analytics.

"Akshay will lead our efforts to integrate state-of-the-art catastrophe science and engineering with the best of the industry's catastrophe modeling to form our view of location-level and large-scale risk − benefiting both our product development and our customers' efforts to better understand and mitigate their risk and reduce loss costs," said Sanjay Godhwani, Executive Vice President, BHSI. "We are pleased to welcome Akshay, and to add his exceptional expertise to our property team."

At AIR, Gupta was an SVP leading a practice providing engineering-based, site-specific risk modeling and assessments for complex industrial and commercial facilities and operations. His background also includes catastrophe model research and development, supply chain risk modeling, and disaster risk financing and mitigation projects for corporations and sovereign states.
