ZURICH. February 11, 2019 – RMS, the world’s leading risk modelling and analytics firm, announces the appointment of Oliver Nieswandt as Managing Director of Continental Europe. Oliver will be based in the RMS Zurich office.
Oliver started his career at Hannover Re where he developed systems for catastrophe risk accumulation, reinsurance treaty administration, and underwriting. This was followed by a successful career at SAP where his roles included Global Client Director for Allianz and Munich Re, Client Executive, and manager of custom development projects. Oliver also held roles at HCL AXON (as the DACH Insurance Practice leader), and Dell (where he led BFSI for DACH).
