Everest Insurance, the insurance division of global underwriter Everest Re Group, has announced that it has appointed Jaime Chaves (pictured above) to lead its operations in Mexico, pending regulatory approval.

Chaves will be based in Mexico City and will report to Pablo Korze, regional president for Latin America at Everest Insurance.

“Jaime comes to us with deep market experience, longstanding, trusted relationships and a proven track record of fostering diverse, high-performing teams,” Korze said. “He is the ideal leader to help us bring Everest’s value proposition to Mexico and deliver solutions to bridge unmet needs in this important region as we continue our strategic growth throughout Latin America.”

Chaves has more than 25 years of industry experience and brings to his new role extensive experience of the Latin American insurance and reinsurance markets. In the role, he will be responsible for leading Everest Insurance’s expansion into Mexico, including managing strategy and operations, developing new client and business relationships, and identifying growth opportunities throughout the country.
