PartnerRe President & CEO Patrick Thiele said, “This event is an
unprecedented human tragedy, with the extraordinary loss of life and
widespread devastation across the region representing what has become one of the worst natural disasters in recent history. On behalf of all of PartnerRe, I express our deepest sorrow over the significant loss of life and our sympathies go out to all those who have been affected by this terrible tragedy.”
