The Australian Reinsurance Pool Corporation (ARPC) has announced the appointment of Scott Unterrheiner as Chief Financial Officer (CFO).

Unterrheiner will join ARPC in November 2022 from Gen Re, where he is currently CFO and Company Secretary for Australia and New Zealand for property and casualty reinsurance and life reinsurance.

ARPC stated that having spent almost 10 years at Gen Re, Unterrheiner has a strong understanding of both the Australian and global reinsurance sectors, with extensive knowledge of catastrophe reinsurance.

Unterrheiner also brings strong financial and actuarial leadership to ARPC.

He has held previous roles in chartered accountancy, financial control and capital management in professional services and financial services firms. He holds a Bachelor of Commerce in Accounting from Macquarie University and a Graduate Diploma in Chartered Accountancy from the Institute of Chartered Accountants.

ARPC CEO Chris Wallace said: “I am delighted that Scott is joining ARPC, as he will strengthen ARPC’s catastrophe reinsurance capability while insurers transition to the cyclone reinsurance pool, which for large insurers is by 31 December 2023. He will be a key contributor to both our continued work in terrorism reinsurance as well as building our cyclone reinsurance capability. The whole ARPC team looks forward to welcoming Scott to the team”.

ARPC’s interim CFO, Peter Matruglio, will continue in the role until Unterrheiner takes over in November 2022.

ARPC stated that Matruglio is an experienced non-executive director and interim executive with a deep career as a leader in the insurance and finance sectors in assurance and risk advisory in professional services firms.
