Daryl de Vos.

After close to two decades of varied insurance and reinsurance experience during which he established himself as a key player in the South African insurance industry, Daryl was head-hunted in 2003 to join the pioneer management team that transformed the Corporation's representative office to a wholly-owned subsidiary licensed to undertake reinsurance business in South Africa. His appointment paid off as he was a key driver of the Corporation's rapid growth in that highly competitive market.

Daryl commenced his career with the Corporation as General Manager Underwriting and Marketing and rose to become Deputy Managing Director (2007) and Managing Director (2011) at ARCSA. Apart from successfully leading the underwriting and marketing function at ARCSA over the years, Daryl has consistently participated in and contributed to the Corporation?s rating exercises and retrocession programmes to good effect. He continues to support the growth of the Corporation?s business especially in Southern Africa.
Daryl is a committed insurance professional who has served and continues to serve on a number of industry associations including the South African Insurance Association (Board member since 2013) and the Insurance Institute of the Cape of Good Hope (President 2003). He has attended numerous professional and management-level training programmes including the International Management Development Programme of the Wits Business School. 
We look forward to his tenure, commitment and enthusiasm as the 45th President of the Insurance Institute of South Africa.
