    Juliana Toes - Mayer Brown

    Juliana Toes - Mayer Brown

    We are joined by Juliana Toes, an Associate at Mayer Brown, this week on AIRROC’s The Legacy Life. 
    Juliana is a member of the AIRROC NextGen Council, and we have been keeping her very busy with speaking engagements this year. She has presented at the 2023 Deal Forum, the 2023 Regional Education Day in Chicago, the 2023 Demystifying Legacy event with RE40 in NYC and moderated a panel at the 2023 Summer Membership Meeting. While it may sound like a lot (and it is), Juliana says: “It’s been one of the greatest parts about AIRROC.” She enjoys having “the opportunity to go to different events and… sit down and talk with people, especially having the benefit of…having given one presentation… It’s just another way to…get your name out there, and it also just gives you something to now talk about with other people [at the events].”


    If you’re a NextGen professional in the legacy space and presenting to industry leaders at conferences sounds like your cup of tea, get involved with AIRROC NextGen at the link below today! We are always looking for speakers and committee members. Looking for something in a leadership role? Applications for NextGen Council positions will be available for Fall 2023 soon!

    Layla Trummer - Munich Re

    Layla Trummer - Munich Re

    This week we are joined by Layla Trummer, a Reinsurance Structurer at Munich Re Insurance America Incorporated. Layla is an active member of the AIRROC NextGen Council. If she sounds familiar, you may have heard her speaking at the 2023 Deal Forum, the 2023 Regional Education Day in Chicago or the 2023 Demystifying Legacy event with RE40 in NYC.   
    Layla discovered reinsurance in university while researching what kinds of companies hire actuaries. She may have been the only 18 year old to have ever said: "Wow. Insurance for insurance companies? That sounds pretty cool!" Working as a reinsurance structurer allowed Layla to develop her strategic thinking while still leveraging her technical background. She notes that once people get involved in reinsurance, particularly legacy reinsurance, they realize how interesting and dynamic the field is.

    Sandra Santomenno and Eric Pince - WTW

    We’re talking to Sandy Santomenno and Eric Pince from WTW this week. Sandy is the soon-to-be retired Senior Director in charge of the legacy liabilities space at WTW which includes asbestos, environmental and health hazard claims. We’re glad we caught her before she left! And Eric is currently transitioning into the Senior Director role. 
    In this episode, we talk about the future of the legacy space, including how there’s an ongoing need for creative thinkers and people interested in learning how to use cutting edge technology such as AI and machine learning. “It’s a dynamic space. It’s a challenging space,” Eric says. “It definitely is a space for somebody who is curious.”

    Natalie Weedman - Swiss Re

    In the legacy spotlight this week is Natalie Weedman, a Portfolio Management Analyst at Swiss Re. Natalie is also a member of the AIRROC NextGen Council and has been actively involved with NextGen almost since its creation in 2020.  

    Natalie started her career working at an insurance agency as a license producer for personal lines P&C. Three years into that role she decided she never wanted to work in insurance again.  A friend suggested she take a job in reinsurance. Like many of us, Natalie didn't know what reinsurance was when she started, but she was eager to try something new and is happy that she did. "I didn't have any sort of credentials. Really, someone just gave me a chance," she says as she looks back at her career.

    Megan McHugh - Brandywine

    This week on The Legacy Life we are talking to Megan McHugh, AVP on the Assumed Reinsurance team at Brandywine Group of Insurance and Reinsurance Companies. Only a few of our guests have had linear career paths, and Megan is certainly not one of them. During our conversation she explains how she left the reinsurance industry to raise her children and then successfully reentered the industry thirteen years later. Going back into reinsurance after so many years was daunting, but she did it. Megan credits her support system at home and thanks many of the people who gave her a chance or helped her along the way.

    Eric Haller - Fleming Insurance Holdings

    Eric Haller - Fleming Insurance Holdings

    Welcome to season 4 of AIRROC's The Legacy Life! We are thrilled to be back and chatting with Eric Haller, CEO and co-founder of Fleming Insurance Holdings. For those not in the know, Fleming was founded in 2018 with the goal of reimagining the legacy space through LPT solutions, changing how risks are shared and applying modern technology to old claims. 

    Eric started his career in insurance as a CPA, CFA, but he didn't take the path in insurance that one would expect from someone holding those designations. He notes that he "never booked a journal entry" and instead wound his way around the industry taking opportunities as they presented themselves. In doing so, he developed a broad understanding of the industry that lead him to being in the right place at the right time to co-found Fleming.
