Aviva North America, part of Aviva plc, the world's sixth-largest insurance group, today announced that Saskia Goedhart has been named chief risk officer for the North America region. Goedhart is joining Aviva from Munich Re Life, North America.

At Aviva, Goedhart will lead the region’s risk management strategy, including the implementation of the company’s risk management transformation plan.

“I am pleased to have someone of Saskia’s experience and caliber in risk analysis and management,” said Richard Hoskins, Aviva North America chief executive officer. “With her strong background in risk and compliance, she is an excellent choice to champion Aviva’s global risk vision and strategy here in North America.”

Goedhart comes to Aviva from a similar capacity as chief risk officer of the North America Life operations of Munich Re. In that role, she was charged with establishing the enterprise risk management function. Prior to Munich Re, she worked 10 years at ING as head of Asset Liability Management and Capital Management in the U.S., and in other senior-level risk and financial management roles throughout the company in Europe, the U.S. and Asia Pacific.

Goedhart also has more than 10 years of experience as a corporate financial and risk management consultant, having worked at PricewaterhouseCoopers and Van Den Boom Groep.

“Saskia fills a crucial role at Aviva in our ongoing efforts to drive a risk-aware culture throughout North America,” Hoskins said. “With her globally diverse background in capital management, enterprise risk management and actuarial financial analysis, she will be instrumental in guiding Aviva during a critical time in our business.”

Reporting directly to Hoskins, Goedhart will oversee the risk management teams of both Aviva USA and Aviva Canada and serve as a member of Aviva North America’s executive committee.
