SAN MATEO, Calif., April 05, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Jupiter , the global leader in climate analytics for resilience and risk management, announced today that industry veteran Marc Lehmann had joined the company as Head of Business Development and Partnerships – UK/Europe. In his new role, Lehmann will spearhead Jupiter’s ongoing expansion in UK/European markets.
“European multinationals are sophisticated when it comes to climate-related risk,” said Rich Sorkin, CEO of Jupiter. “Marc’s deep expertise in insurance and cat risk in European markets and track record of growing new businesses make him the ideal person to guide Jupiter’s first wave of geographic expansion outside of the United States, building on our existing relationships with Zurich Insurance Group, BP and several others across the continent.”
Prior to joining Jupiter, Lehmann served as Director within the Climate Risk and Decarbonization Strategy group at KPMG in London, following several senior level roles within the insurance sector including Head of Client Service Development at AIG, and Global Head of Catastrophe Risk Management for corporate clients at Willis Towers Watson.
“Climate change continues to dominate the risk agenda at board level for many major corporate and financial services organisations in the UK/Europe and there is an ever growing need for focused analytics to help firms identify, quantify and manage these risks,” Lehmann said. “Nobody is addressing physical climate risk as comprehensively and effectively as Jupiter, which is why I’m so thrilled to be joining them now.”
