The Bermuda Insurance Institute (“BII”) appointed Dawnnelle Walker as its first ever chief executive officer.

Walker is currently senior manager (vice president) for Learning & Development at HSBC Bank of Bermuda Ltd.

Walker will assume her role at the BII in November, 2012. In her role as CEO, she will report to the Governing Council of the BII.

It is anticipated that the BII Governing Council positions of president and vice president will be changed to chairman and vice chairman at the BII’s next Annual General Meeting to accommodate the change in the day to day leadership role to one of CEO.

BII’s Governing Council president Chris Fisher said: “The BII’s recently announced partnership with the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business to offer a world-class leadership course in Bermuda in Spring 2013 is an excellent example of the type of new offering that the BII will be seeking to make available to the Bermuda (re)insurance and associated industry workforce going forward. The BII Governing Council is firmly committed to building upon the BII’s superb record of training and development in the Bermuda (re)insurance market over the past 40 years and we see Dawnnelle’s appointment as another critical step in our efforts to remain relevant in the dynamic (re)insurance market.”
