Summit Reinsurance Services Inc., a managing underwriter working exclusively with Swiss Re Corporate Solutions to provide medical excess-of-loss coverage to health plans, providers and insurers, has hired Shaun Peterson as VP and lead reinsurance underwriter. Peterson will focus on provider excess-of-loss insurance and health plan excess-of-loss reinsurance as he joins the Summit Re actuarial and underwriting team.

Summit Re says Peterson is a former United Healthcare director of actuarial services. Prior, he was a senior executive with HCC as VP for reinsurance and chief actuary for Perico Life Insurance Co. Peterson has extensive experience in both the insurance and reinsurance markets, Summit Re adds.

“Health care reform presents a myriad of new risks and opportunities,” says Mark Troutman, president, Summit Re. “As Summit Re manages its existing commercial, Medicare and Medicaid product lines, it will also seek to provide insurance and reinsurance solutions to accountable care organizations, health care cooperatives and health insurance exchanges. Shaun’s skills and experience will be invaluable in each undertaking.”
