Compre hires strengthen group for further growth


Compre, the international specialist legacy group, today announces the appointment of Marialuisa Petrella as claims director, and Connie Tregidga as group M&A director.

Petrella will join Compre in May from Armour Risk Management Limited where she served as head of European claims. Prior to that she worked for QBE and is a lawyer by profession. Petrella will report to Simon Hawkins, COO, and brings more than 17 years of claims experience across a broad range of classes and jurisdictions.

Tregidga will join Compre’s business generation team in July. She previously spent 11 years at QBE, most recently as head of retrospective solutions and group reinsurance counsel, and will report to chief development officer Eleni Iacovides. Both will be based in London.

The appointments follow a series of pivotal developments for Compre during the last 10 months, having launched class 3A Bermudian reinsurer Pallas Re, established Lloyd’s legacy syndicate 1994 and gained significant additional capital backing from Cinven and BCI.

Hawkins said: “Marialuisa brings a broad variety of technical, managerial and strategic ability to Compre, with an exceptional track record of managing high value and complex claims. I very much look forward to working with her and am extremely pleased to welcome her to Compre.”

Iacovides said: “Connie is an outstanding and highly-respected corporate lawyer, whose deal skills will be a considerable addition to our growing team and I am delighted to welcome her to Compre. Both appointments complement and strengthen our business and will be great assets as we look to fulfil our vision and achieve our ambitious growth plans.”
