COGITANDA Dataprotect AG, Germany’s provider of cyber risk management and insurance solutions, is strengthening its Executive Board and appoints Ronan Gerety as Chief Insurance Officer (CIO) as of 1st September 2021. Based in Cologne, the 54-year-old will be primarily responsible for international growth and further developing the cyber risk specialist’s offerings.

Gerety, who started his career at the Lloyd’s Market in London and with the Gerling Group, joins from industrial insurer Liberty Specialty Markets, where he held the role of General Manager, with responsibility for Germany since 2018. He was also responsible for building up the European business of the speciality insurer Catlin, where, as one of its founding directors, he supported the opening of 13 offices across nine European countries from 2004 until 2015 and was instrumental in expanding relationships with European brokers and driving the development of Catlin’s insurance products.

Jörg Wälder, founder and CEO of the COGITANDA Group, adds: “We are delighted to have gained such a renowned industry expert in Ronan Gerety to help drive and shape our ambitious and ongoing expansion. Having already become the quality and innovation leader in cyber risk management in Germany, we now want to establish COGITANDA as a European champion in this market segment as well.”

Ronan Gerety said: “Despite Brexit, there is considerable new capacity and new players entering the London market who are very keen to write continental European insurance in such a future-oriented business line such as cyber, particularly when they can partner with an innovative player like COGITANDA, with its highly developed IT platform, its sophisticated Risk management and Claims handling services and its rapidly growing German and European customer base.”

The company was founded in 2016 in Kreuzberg (Ahr) and now has offices across six locations in Germany, Austria and France, namely in Cologne, Munich, Hamburg, Vienna and Paris. COGITANDA has established itself in the German-speaking region within a very short period through its innovative three-pillar business model approach.
