Reactions unveiled the winners of its North American Awards last night during a glamourous ceremony at New York’s prestigious Cipriani Wall Street.
It was the 10th time Reactions has hosted an awards event in New York, although it was the second time they were focused solely on the North American and Bermudian market.
Many of the industry’s leading lights were in attendance to see who was going to be recognised for their achievements over the course of the past year.
The big winners on the night were Everest Re and Ace, both of which had a hand in three awards. Everest Re won ILS Deal of the Year for Kilimanjaro Re, while Dominic Addesso was named Reinsurance CEO of the Year and Joseph Taranto was handed the Lifetime Achievement award.
Ace was given awards for Capital Raising of the Year, Launch of the Year and Bermuda Insurer of the Year, with the first two relating to its innovative ABR Re venture which it launched with BlackRock.
XL Catlin won M&A Deal of the Year, while the company’s CEO was named Insurance CEO of the Year. Both Guy Carpenter, Willis Re and Aon Benfield were also handed numerous awards during the evening.
